The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has outsourced their copyright checking to Washington-based company iCopyright. (Anyone else sick of all the stuff starting with ‘i’s? iPad was kind of the last straw for me.) This is bad news for bloggers trying to keep their quotations of the CBC on the up and up, as the new rules are both tedious to follow and rather expensive.
Following the announcement that the New York Times will begin charging for access in 2011, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s move is another sign that media sources with fledgling income are scrounging for new ways to stay in the black.
