PAPER SUES BLOGGER/NEWSLETTER PUBLISHER
News Service of Florida sues SaintPetersblog.com publisher Peter Schorsch

http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/the-buzz- ... da/2229194
"The crux of the complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Tampa, by News Service parent company Affiliated News is that Schorsch republishes reporting without permission, benefitting from ad revenue on his websites and growing his own subscriber base, all while making a paid News Service subscription less necessary. 'The News Service of Florida has a copyright to its material, but it does not have a copyright on the news. Its accusations of me proactively accessing its material are baseless and — in this day and age of socially-networked news and search engines — ridiculous,' Schorsch wrote. 'I understand NSF is having financial problems, but striking out against me and my reporters is not going to solve them.'”
