Old media vampires

Bloggers who quote from Associated Press material (the guys who really write the news articles which appear in newspapers under someone else's name) are meant to pay a fee.

So you'd think that bloggers quoted by Associated Press would be… paid a fee!

You'd be wrong. They just steal it. I wouldn't mind at all if the relationship was mutual, but hey-ho, that's capitalism in a nutshell.

W00t has sent them a witty bill. Wonder if they'll pay.
