Blogger’s YouTube plea for $75 payment from newspaper

Tina Dupuy, blogger and freelance writer, is very unhappy with the Tampa Tribune. She claims she submitted a piece to the newspaper, which was then published without replying to her first. On her blog she writes:

“A month ago I found via Google Alert a piece of mine was published in the Tampa Tribune. They never contacted me prior to publishing it. I sent them an email telling them I was never asked for my permission. The editor Jeff Sidham [sic], responded explaining my unsolicited submission didn’t ask for payment or permission. Which is not how copyright works.”

Dupuy makes a public plea for $75 on YouTube.
