Angry Blogger Confronts Newspaper Who Copied His Work

Earlier this month, Duane Lester posted an article he had written himself on his blog, as he often does. But this particular article gained the attention of a local newspaper in Missouri, who then copied almost word for word the entire article Duane had written just 10 days before.

Instead of being walked over by a newspaper company, the annoyed blogger decided to take things into his own hands. Armed with a video camera and a demand for $500 for the time it took him to write that article, he confronts the small amount of people running the newspaper.

As you can imagine, the heads of the paper company aren’t too pleased with Lester’s request, however give him the money anyway when threatened with legal action.
