It seems there are some people in the world who wish technology stopped around developing around 1997. It's understandable in some respects because some are just ready for change; best of luck to them. It just so happens that a lot of those people seem to law makers and judges in Europe. This is when this neo-Ludditism becomes toxic and destructive.
Spain, in a bewildering move, has passed a measure called canon AEDE, which will update copyright law in the country. The copyright amendments will be voted upon in full in the autumn, but this is an indication of what the final result will look like. The AEDE is the journalism association of newspapers and periodicals in Spain. What the law envisages is that news editors are granted an 'inalienable right' to levy fees on links provided by aggregators for merely listing the link and giving a 'meaningful description' (whatever that might mean). It's been nicknamed the 'Google tax', but the reach is far wider than that. If you are a service posting links to one of the members of the AEDE, prepare your wallet.
