I posted about this last night, Shelley Batt’s from Retrospectacle is being threatened by Wiley with legal action over the reproduction of a chart and a graph in one of her blog posts. It’s totally ridiculous, but what is really awesome is to watch the comments of support for her pour in. Boing Boing even picked up the story! I submitted the story last night after I noticed someone suggesting that everyone submit it so that it would be sure to catch Cory Doctorow’s attention. The “thanks” at the bottom of the post says “to everyone who suggested this”- I’d be interested to know how many people did. She has a lot of supporters and I admire her for standing up about this complete injustice!
