MediaNews Group, Freedom Communications, and Swift Communications accuse of “flagrant and persistent theft of intellectual property.” The blog’s proprietors respond: “Not only are we posting only a few paragraphs from stories THAT ARE ALREADY FREE FOR EVERYONE ONLINE, we have gone out of our way to name the publication, highlight the author in particular, and provide a clear link to the story.”

We have made it easy to comment on posts, however we require civility and encourage full names to that end (first initial, last name is OK). Please read our guidelines here before commenting.
