California News Times Illegally Scrapes Oakland News Now Content For Use On Google News

This is outrageous and also illegal.  It’s not legal for a person or company to wholesale copy Oakland News Now content and post it to basically replace where Oakland News Now content would come up in search – no excerpt, and no obvious track-back link.

But that’s what the owners of California News Times have done and are doing.

Who is CaliforniaNewsTimes.com?  That’s hard to know at this time but I am working on it.  They don’t even post the names of authors, which I thought was outside of Google News rules.  By appearances in the design and operation of the theme, California News Times looks like EMINETRA.COM, another web scraping site that was the first to take Oakland News Now content, but then basically stopped about two months after CaliforniaNewsTimes.com started popping up.

I have reached out to Google Search honcho Danny Sullivan about this, but not a response, yet.

I’m not saying its Danny’s fault, but I would think that in his position, he would be able to make sure Google policy is followed, and users are protected.

Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
