Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - AP Content off Limits - Guidelines to Come

« Create Meaning and Value | Main | Evolution of Business »


@Will - there is a tracking system, as a matter of fact, it's called Attributor. See BusinessWeek article here (would not want to quote)

@Drew - I do prefer conversations with peers, admittedly.

I think I quote unknowns more than main stream sources. Main stream just doesn't seem as trustworthy these days.

Great post, but worrying and trying to make guidelines on this concern just feels like the War on Drugs to me. We are going to try to create a system that limits something people are going to do anyway. Until there is a full policing system of the Internet (God-willingly, never) there will never be a stop to plagiarism or reprinting. We should just get used to the idea that this is how news spreads now. But, most responsible bloggers will at least attribute the story.
