This Totally Sucks - by Dave Pell - NextDraft:

The internet has long operated according to an unwritten bargain. People make their content available to search engines and in exchange, search engines drive users back to the sites where that content resides. That agreement has been upended by AI programs like ChatGPT and Google’s Gemini. There’s a new bargain: Giant banks of computers inhale your content and use it to train their own systems to answer anything on their own sites. They suck up everything and you get played for a sucker. Soon, everything ever shared on the web will been sucked dry.
