Copyright, Auto-blogs, and an Outdated System

Diana and I rarely reblog one another, but I want this back out there one more time before the weekend. If you missed it, it’s about automated blogs that pull entire posts from the WordPress tags and use them to generate ad revenue. That is a lousy way to make money. We’re non-commercial, and we’re aware of just how tenuous any claim we have to copyright for our stuff is. But we believe in fair use. If there were any real promotional value for the blogs that are having their stuff ripped off like this, it might be different. But there’s not.
