Google vs. Microsoft global war, emerging superpowers

Davao’s leapfrog to the IT bandwagon comes in the heels of a global war between two IT giants, Google and Microsoft over content copyright for their commercial benefit. Read the story here.

Well, IT users like us in cyberspace and the mass media, could stand to benefit from this war, looking at the surface. Initially, these giants will suck in more contents for their advantage. But already, copyright owners like those for books, photos and other contents are crying foul.

The way I see it, they are emerging as powerful superpowers and discretely (not much actually) taking control of the world. Gone are the days when countries like the United States are the superpowers.

They have threatened law suits against each other and the individual content users, like me, stand in the corner wondering. Will this benefit or pin down this free cyberspace content user?

I just do hope this will not end up to be a war between the content users and the giants. Let’s see how the action will go in this global battlefield.
