Huffington Post Slammed for Content Theft

I call it the Arianna factor... What a bimbo! Typical liberal way of doing things...

The Huffington Post, a venture-capital-backed new media site that mixes links to other sites content with hundreds of celebrity and volunteer blogger posts, is being accused of slimy business practices by a handful of smaller publications who say the site is unfairly copying and publishing their content.

Whet Moser, an editor at alternata]ive weekly Chicago Reader wants to know why The Huffington Post's newly formed Chicago-focused venture is stealing their copyrighted concert reviews and reprinting them in whole in order to get search engine traffic. And he found other examples taken wholesale from The Onion and Time Out Chicago.

WEB POACH: GateHouse Media sues NY Times Co. over copyright

See what I mean about liberal losers?

BOSTON (AP) -- GateHouse Media Inc. filed a copyright infringement lawsuit Monday against the parent company of The Boston Globe, claiming the newspaper's new community Web sites use online material from GateHouse without permission.

In a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Boston against The New York Times Co., GateHouse claimed Boston.com violated copyright and trademark laws by "reproducing, displaying and distributing" its newspaper headlines and original material published on its "Wicked Local" Web sites.

GateHouse, one of the nation's largest publishers of community newspapers, alleges in the lawsuit that Boston.com offers links that send readers directly to "Wicked Local" stories -- bypassing ads posted on home pages that help fund the operation.

GateHouse says it set up electronic security measures to prevent users with a certain Boston.com address from scrapping content off its Web sites.

Still, GateHouse alleges, Boston.com intentionally circumvented those measures...
