Attribution and Affiliation on All Things Digital

Andy Baio digs into the reuse of certain content by AllThingsD for their Voices section:

Also, be sure to read the related response from Anil Dash about how the Associated Press plans to handle a similar reuse of content:

If the Associated Press made its argument on the basis of credibility and reputation, transparency and accountability, as the web-native publishers have, it would be far easier to defend their desire to share in the business model developed by the aggregators.
