News Corp. chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch spoke with Fox Business Network‘s David Asman in an interview that will air in its entirety on America’s Nightly Scoreboard at 7 p.m. ET Thursday.

Fox Business Network is airing segments of the interview throughout Thursday. Courtesy of the network, Murdoch on paid content:

Well, Fox is now paid for. People, when they pay their cable bills, some of it comes to Fox. Cable television is paid television. But search on the Internet, whether it be Bing or Google, whatever, it’s free, and they simply take all of our expensive and, we think, very good content, such as The Wall Street Journal or whatever, and what they call they scrape it, and they use it for search. It gives them their raw material for nothing. And then they have this very clever business model of charging for searching it. We don’t get any of that. And they are technologically brilliant, they are a long way ahead, but they do not have the right to do it if we want to stop them.
