News Corp vs. the Google age. Guess who's going to lose

Murdoch may stop Google news searches. Really? :o)

The death of newsprint has been coming for years; it's interesting to see how newspapers are trying various tactics to monetize the shift to the Internet as the worlds of old marketing and news delivery crumble.

News Corp has previously mentioned charging for online access to news and now Rupert Murdoch has apparently said he believes search engines cannot legally use headlines and paragraphs of news stories as search results.

For someone used to leveraging a near-monopoly I think it's interesting he hasn't recognised he's met one far more powerful and this one's based on openness, not limit and control.

News Corp vs. the Google age. No prizes for guessing who's going to lose.

Update.
Twitter urges Murdoch to be open. Biz Stone has now commented on how Murdoch must be set for failure with his 'closed' approach. check out http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8368750.stm
