As of today, we have made important changes to the All Things Digital Voices section, which should be of interest to some (and not at all to others).
Why? Well, a few weeks ago, ATD was caught up in a bit of the controversy that broke out due to louder-than-usual complaints by several traditional media companies about how their content is treated on the Web.
Without going into a long explanation: They expressed displeasure that some sites were misusing their content via aggregation.
In fact, Robert Thomson, Dow Jones editor-in-chief and also The Wall Street Journal managing editor, was widely quoted in an interview in The Australian saying, “There is no doubt that certain websites are best described as parasites or tech tapeworms in the intestines of the internet.”
