Dow Jones lawsuit claims 'brazen' content theft

Dow Jones & Co. says in its suit today against Briefing.com that in just one two-week period, the investment website copied a "substantial portion" of at least 100 articles, and republished more than 70 headlines within three minutes of their initial publication on Dow Jones Newswires. The complaint claims Briefing.com cut and pasted Dow Jones content and included the pirated material in its cheaper product, according to a just-moved story on The Wall Street Journal.
