Sherman Fredericks 'Steals'* From Me
from the where's-my-corvette dept
So, it seems rather amusing to me, as pointed out by iamtheky that Federicks seemed to have absolutely no issue whatsoever with copying from my blog in trying to mock our post about Righthaven suing Matt Drudge. He quoted one sentence out of a five sentence post -- or 20%. In other words, he copied more of my post than was copied on some of the sites Righthaven is suing. So, I'm confused, Sherm, is copying stealing or not? And why is it okay for you to do it to me, but not for others to do it? And where's my damn Corvette?
On top of all that, to make it even more silly, Fredericks misrepresents what I said. I questioned why anyone would rely on a Righthaven-connected newspaper as a source ever again, for fear of getting tied up in a bogus legal fight, and he says I really mean "use without permission." No, Sherm, that's not what I meant at all, and you know it. I said as a source. I said nothing about copying anything -- though you seem to have no problem "stealing Corvettes" from me when it suits your needs, huh?
* For those who miss the obvious intent here, no, I'm not actually accusing Sherman Fredericks of "stealing" from me, because that's ridiculous, and copying is not "stealing" in any way shape, or form. I'm merely pointing out the hypocrisy of Fredericks by highlighting how he does not live up to his own confused standard.
