From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I concur with the following proposals: Allow news organizations to agree jointly to erect pay walls so that consumers must pay for access to online content. Allow news organizations to agree jointly on a mechanism to require news aggregators and others to pay for the use of online content, perhaps through the use of copyright licenses. These appear to be a reasonable approach which has the least impact on public policy and does not establish a new bureau.
