Adult Diapers, Stealing Content and PR Newswire Executives

While the 10Q Detective cannot confirm the veracity of this claim, we can tell you that PR Newswire continues to pirate our articles without compensation. If this article snakes through the ethers of the Internet and magically appears as a 10Q Detective story under the PR Newswire URL -- in effect, "stealing" traffic, well -- to you folks over at the parent company, FinancialContent Services, Inc. -- the quality of "your" news is about as good as the premium paid for it: nothing!

Chief executive, Wing Yu, who likes to boast that "FinancialContent is the trusted provider of stock market information to the media industry," could not be reached for comment. Does the media message of "trusted provider" imply veracity in the alleged diaper fetishes of his staff?

Stolen content seems to be a growing problem and it's not just the little guys who are doing it anymore. Unfortunately, it hurts everyone including the users who are looking for fresh content. There is certainly plenty of original financial news to go around.

As an author of several nonfiction works, believe me, I know how much it sucks to have researched and written something, only to have it stolen by someone else who profits from it.

Sometime you could file the copyright with the US Copyright Office of one of your posts. If I remember correctly, it's like 35 bucks, and you just mail in a copy to them along with the form.

Then if your material gets stolen again, you could get some money to compensate you for their use of it. Good luck!
