DAYTONA BEACH -- A site listed in the search engines as http://www.flnewsfeed.com is blatantly stealing the intellectual property of HeadlineSurfer.com, the Central Florida-based 24/7 internet newspaper, and passing it off as its own.
Headline Surfer® has sent "Florida News Feed" several tweets over the weekend and again this morning demanding that it cease and desist from lifting our copyright-protected stories, blogs and images. We have also contacted Google Legal and are awaiting a response.
Headline Surfer® will do everything it can within its limited financial resources to protect the integrity of its content. Florida Feed is some kind of automated site that literally lifts whole stories, including headlines belonging to other sites and giving the impression the contest is self-generated.
