Re: Obvious Explanation

We sort of saw that in Australia recently when an argumanet that "the US tech companies ought to pay local new companies for all the stories they 'steal'" led to Facebook deciding that it would prevent anyone putting this material on their sites and immediately the argument morphed into "how dare these US tech companies prevent stories from local news companies appearing on their pages".

I'm waiting for the time when someone like the EU passes some new rules and Google or Amazon or Facebook announce that "as they want to ensure they are fully compliant that they will be suspending all services in the area for a few days while they check that they are compliant" and see how the general public react when their bread'n'circuses are turned off
