It just keeps getting better [Nov. 4th, 2010|01:29 pm]
Here's my favorite part of the Cooks Source kerfluffle, thanks to meyerweb: Oh, no: http://is.gd/gIxbR copies text of http://is.gd/gIxe8 WITH A NEW BYLINE.

So apparently the line about lifting the story and putting on a new byline came to her mind because they do that.

I was just almost starting to feel sorry for the editor, as she's being tarred and feathered globally for her stupidity and the vitriol is getting a bit extreme.

But... wow. That's just shameful.

I would not want to be her today for anything in the world.

not to say in any way that I approve of her actions or that the public outcry isn't completely deserved, because it is. Her audacity apparently knows no bounds.

There's a whole list now of companies from which they've stolen. I linked it in an entry, but it includes NPR, Sunset, and Disney.

That's just awesome. :P Oh, did she ever make a huge mistake - and compounded it by not apologizing and making it right.

I'm betting the Disney sharks are already on it, but just in case, I'm sending your link to a couple of my friends over at the Mouse House. ;)

I'm willing to bet the 'editor' of Cooks Source is going to become an expert in copyright laws and the internet, but what an expensive lesson. Deserved, though.

here's what i'm wondering. obviously, things found in books or print magazines have copywrights. but who told this person that the internet was all free stuff? because *some*one had to have said it one time or another.

Someone may have said it to her at some point, but five minutes of research would have made it clear that this is not the case.
