"Stern—a very large weekly news magazine—published a gallery of erotic photos as part of its editorial content. It wasn't gratuitous: It was just part of the material published in the magazine itself, integrated in their usual sections. The entire app was taken down, according to the Spiegel, and publisher Gruner + Jahr had to eliminate that content in order for the application to go up to the store again. They learnt their lesson, since they haven't published any other material that may offend Apple's "moral police"—as the German press calls it."

The main reason the advertising revenue on the Internet is so frustratingly low: The supply of advertising space is much larger. This is called a market."

Brilliant stuff. Axel Springer wants a a “one-click marketplace solution” for their online content: "What kind of content would come at a cost? Any 'noncommodity journalism,' [Axel Springer's Cristoph Keese] said, citing pictures of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi of Italy cavorting poolside with models at his villa in Sardinia — published this year by the Spanish daily El País — as an example. 'How much would people pay for that? Surely €5,' he said."

"Two couriers at a package distribution center stole a Christmas cake destined for a German newspaper and mailed in its place a package of credit card data, prosecutors said Friday. The mix-up triggered an alarm over lost bank customer details. A batch of microfilmed data including names, addresses and card transactions ended up at the Frankfurter Rundschau daily last week"

"With the internet already in its second decade and host to reams of material for which paper was too expensive or too cumbersome, it is startling to realise that the German national library and its worldwide peers are only just beginning to grapple with the problems of systematically archiving the web."
