+ - Copyright extended to newspaper excerpts->

Submitted by Kwyj1b0
Kwyj1b0 (2757125) writes "German, Italian, and French newspapers want Google to pay for publishing excerpts from their articles using copyright protection. While they claim that giving away the headline and first sentence makes readers less likely to click through to the newspaper website, Google claims to have directed 4 billion clicks to websites every month (and a simple tag would prevent their articles from appearing on Google News). Is there any chance this bill would pass? And would the rest of the world's media conglomerates follow this path? When Murdoch labeled search engines as "content kleptomaniacs", it seems inevitable that something like this would happen."
