    Having to pay to even link to news articles will only accelerate the downfall of journalism though. Instead of paying, why not just link to an AI generated article instead? Much needs to be done to save good journalism but this law is a massive step in the exact opposite direction

      An AI generated article would still need source material.

      Anyway, what would be the appeal of a platform that couldn’t link anything but just showed AI content?

      The way I see it, journalism is more or less dead. A shade of the former institution. There doesn’t seem many other ways to fund journalistic endeavour.

        “Journalism” has be dead for a long time. Just read up on what Hearst was doing in the 1800’s.

        We’re just seeing the zombie grasping at everything it can.
