It's becoming more difficult to control your own intellectual property in any form. Since Google is punishing scraper sites, the recent court decision allowing Google to scan all books without the author's consent seems a little contradictory.

I agree with his conclusions about the future of search.  We will continue to see more and more targeted advertising from brands that seem to know precisely what we want and when we want it.  

This kind of information gathering is great in the right hands and no so great in the wrong hands.

+Joost de Valk hows it going, we use your paid plugins for SEO and Video, as do a lot of our clients. How will this new move to https/ SSL affect what we already use? And what about CDN's that are already used. Thank you so much , A big shout out to www.yoast.com and www.quixapp.com from all of us here @ WPS. Respect and regards from #losangeles   #wordpress   #wordpressthemes
