TucsonWeekly.com Contributor Bills KOLD for Ripping Off His Work

Posted By on Mon, Aug 13, 2012 at 11:00 AM

For some reason, some people believe that once something is posted on the internet, it can be taken and repurposed in any manner whatsoever. Unfortunately, that mistaken premise is apparently held by KOLD, since Michael McKisson, who runs TucsonVelo.com (and contributes two blog posts a week for The Range), caught the station stealing footage from his site and running it as part of a news story. No credit, no permission, nothing.

So, Michael decided to try to get something back from KOLD for the hard work he did (unwillingly) for their benefit: he sent them an invoice for $300. No word yet from KOLD's news director if they intend to cough up the money.
