If I understand this correctly (and I'm honestly not sure that I do), the above seemingly innocuous graphic has the potential to change
I'd venture to guess that over 50% of the net is founded on cross referencing itself. That is in fact the foundation of how information is shared
and propagated. There are safeguards in place already to protect people's intellectual property.
All of a sudden I'm getting ATS popup warnings when I'm copy pasting anything including a simple external link. Since I have been a member here I
do not recall a single policy implementation with as many broad ranging implications. And these implications extend beyond ATS.
This is not ATS' fault in any way in my view ... the world is changing and they are adapting. That little graphic is foreshadowing a great deal of
what's to come, and nothing less than the control of this thing we call the internet is at stake.
Control the information flow, control the world.
Btw, a more benign explanation for the aforementioned graphic is available
