You might want to take it up with your boss

Ian Shapira's Washington Post lament about how Gawker ripped off his story is getting a lot of attention, and will be the subject of an online chat this week. I wonder what his publisher thinks... oh, wait:

Unlike some of her peers at other papers, [Katharine] Weymouth doesn't disparage online aggregators like Huffington Post, started by Arianna Huffington, or Tina Brown's The Daily Beast, which recycle Post content without payment. "Good for them," she says. "All's fair, you know?"

Unless newspapers take legal action against aggregators, this isn't going to change, ever, no matter what dopey laws are proposed.
