+ - Language Copyrights: Death of Online Dictionaries?

Submitted by toQDuj
toQDuj (806112) writes "Once upon a time, non-Danes could have the pleasure of understanding at least the written language using online dictionaries (http://danish.nigilist.ru/cgi-bin/nph-dict.cgi).
Funnily enough, the knowledge of turning one language into a (more) intelligible one, is now deemed copyrightable by publishers of dictionaries.
As can be read from the site, where the site owner has published the (two) cease and desist letters, no longer is this translation site to exist. The lawyers, on behalf of Gyldendalske Boghandel have requested the cessation of the site. In time, other publishers step in line and abolish all that is online translation-worthy."
