Stealing from Blogs

First, Mother Jones starts a Beltway Traffic Jam. Then, several other sites follow Kevin Aylward with a blog called SportsBlog or very slight variants on the name (Sports Blogs, SportBlog).

Now, the Seattle Times has started up a new blog called PoliBlog. This is obviously more aggregious, since it’s not as if Steven Taylor’s version isn’t well established. Or they don’t have Google in Seattle.

Somehow, I think Sandy Berger is involved.

    For the record, I did start a caption contest on my blog after enjoying the same sort of contest on both OTB and Wizbang.

    I apologize for being unoriginal.

    Asked for his reaction, Joe Biden said: “This is the most revolting development in the field of intellectual property I’ve ever seen, or my name isn’t Orville Redenbacher.”

  6. I suspect no one will be stealing “Kerry’s House of Ketchup.”
