Are News Aggregators Ripping Off Newspapers?

David Lazarus of the San Francisco Chronicle has an interesting take on how the principles that are driving the Viacom-Google lawsuit are just as applicable to news aggregators who compile stories from web based newspapers.  He raises the issues of newspapers not being able to make money from their web outlets while aggregator sites sells ad space next to other people's copyrighted content.

It's interesting reading and you can find it here.
