RE: Supremes rule for freelancers
I predict that we will see a lot more articles pulled from the net all
together than we will see free-lance writers receiving royalty checks (not
counting, of course, the court-mandated back royalties).
First, this is not just 'the Net"-- it includes CD based databases/publishing.
Second, I believe this means that future contracts with freelancers -- photographers included -- will be more specific as to which rights are being purchased or leased.
Most major media (I believe all of those cited) already have pay-per-view for archived material. Yes, it might cause a burp in their negotiations with authors of older material -- but it need not be "the death" of content on the Net from a financial blow.
