    Reading this article reminded me of an off-thread discussion we had a while back here: http://www.sportsjournalists.com/forum/posts/2963178/

    But I didn't think it was appropriate to revive the old thread for that.

    Dean Singleton has his minions buried in a basement looking for similar infringements and issuing cease-and-desist letters. How different the world would look if newspapers had protected their information 10 years ago instead of falling for the "exposure is good" B.S. coming from the very people who were ripping them off.

    Yes, Uncle Dean does. Even 20-year-old autistics.


    Sued for $20,000, but Righthaven will make it all go away for a $6,000 payment.

    Scour a Lean Dean paper and I'm sure there's copyright infringement.
