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.

Editor&Publisher launches blogs

After 124 years in publication, industry news organisation Editor&Publisher (E&P) has entered the blogosphere with two new titles.

Fitz & Jen Give You the Business, written by editor-at-large Mark Fitzgerald and associate editor Jennifer Saba; and The E&P Pub, which will take contributions from all staff, went fully live today.

Because E&P’s main site doesn’t allow article comments, selected articles will be republished on the blog, an announcement by E&P said.
