Dow Jones Sues Briefing.Com For 'Free Riding'

"In what appears to be a shot across the bow to online aggregators, News Corp.'s Dow Jones has sued the Web site for allegedly lifting Dow Jones' articles and headlines.

'Without permission from Dow Jones to do so and without compensating Dow Jones, systematically copies verbatim or nearly verbatim substantial portions of Dow Jones' copyrighted articles ... and distributes them in competition with Dow Jones to subscribers,' Dow Jones alleges in the complaint, filed this week in U.S. District Court in New York."
