James Murdoch dislikes British Library’s newspaper scanning:
“This is not simply being done for posterity, nor to make free access for library users easier, but also for commercial gain via a paid?for website.
The move is strongly opposed by major publishers. If it goes ahead, free content would not only be justification for more funding, but actually become a source of funds for a public body.
We’re very concerned about some of the approaches that are being taken.”
