Plagiarists to pay a price warns Murdoch

In a speech in China Rupert Murdoch lashed out at those using content on the web without paying for it. This follows several months of debate where Murdoch has explicitely announced readers will have to pay for Newscom content online in the near future.

“The aggregators and plagiarists will soon have to pay a price for the co-opting of our content. But if we do not take advantage of the current movement toward paid content, it will be the content creators — the people in this hall — who will pay the ultimate price and the content kleptomaniacs who triumph,” the News Corp. chief executive said.
