Cuban to Murdock: Rupert, You Didn’t Ask, But…

“Mark Cuban has been thinking about empire-building. Not his own.

In a fascinating blog this weekend, Cuban doled out advice to Newscorp’s // [NWS 13.061 0.011 (+0.08%) ] // Rupert Murdoch about charging for content at MySpace and other Newscorp websites.

“Rupert, you didn’t ask my opinion on this,” Cuban starts the blog, “but since when has that ever stopped me.”

First, Cuban suggests that Murdoch should block aggregation sites from linking to Newscorp content, even though he admits that goes against “conventional wisdom”. Cuban specifically points to sites like Michael Wolff’s Newser.com, which is sending Murdoch “inventory” that he usually can’t monetize. “Why would you help a site that is a direct competitor for minimal incremental revenue?””
