From the Guardian: Jonathan Tasini, a former HuffPost blogger, and others who now blog or have blogged for the Huffington Post are suing Arianna Huffington after Ms. Huffington sold her site to AOL. Mr. Tasini alleges that the bloggers have received nothing for what they say has created about one-third of the value of the site. AOL spokesperson Mario Ruiz responded with regard to bloggers' postings, "It's the same reason hundreds of people go on TV shows to promote their views and ideas. HuffPost bloggers can cross-post their work on other sites, including their own."
