TechCrunch ran a piece today “MySpace News Is Stealing Your Search Results.” Some in the comments are accusing the author of linkbaiting, but I think it is an interesting piece.
In short, MySpace “News” is framing content from other sites and producing the kind of pages that look like they’re their own. I’ve been noticing it for a few months now and never took the angle that TechCrunch is.
But now that they mention it …
The fun part is that they used content from the Tivo/Podshow piece of earlier today as their example.
So, screenshots of this little blog have ended up at the Crunch. I couldn’t be prouder.
But my question is this, do you think MySpace is ‘stealing’ content like TechCrunch says or is this just linkbaiting.
I.e., do I have a case?
