Internet Dramz! Bloggers Sue AOL And Huffington Post

Filed under: Legal MattersMedia Minute

bloggers file lawsuit against aol and huffington post

Bloggers are NOT happy with Arianna Huffington!

Today, Freelance journalist Jonathan Tasini filed a class action lawsuit against AOL & Huffington Post, on behalf of a group of bloggers who claim that HuffPost "mistreats those who enrich it with content."

After AOL acquired Huffington Post for $315 million last month, contributing writers feel that they should receive fair compensation for their content, and they're claiming "mistreatment" by Arianna Huffington.

Here's what the complaint against Huffington says:

"If it were not for the labor of Plaintiff and the thousands of unpaid Class members on and for TheHuffingtonPost.com…[the site] would not have been an attractive merger target and would have sold for at least $105 million less than the merger price of $315 million."

HuffPost is referring to the class action lawsuit as "completely baseless."

Who do U side with? Team Bloggers or Team HuffPost?
