Open Source Pajamas

The Pajamas Media (aka Open Source Media) development has been mildly interesting to watch and now I wonder whether anyone will read, analyze, quote and link to anything on that site beyond navel gazing by the participants. My reading of their copyright notice suggests that The Talent Show is has already violated it. Heck I will too:

You may not reproduce, distribute, copy, publish, enter into any database, display, modify, create derivative works, transmit, or in any way exploit any part of this site. The only exceptions to this are that you may download material from Our Site for your own personal use, provided such download is limited to making one machine readable copy and/or one print copy that limited to occasional articles of personal interest only. No other use of the content of Our Site is permitted.
The language seems pretty clear that they don't want us to quote and comment on any of their material so let's oblige them.

Via Making Light.

Um, we at Athenamama declare it officially Friday, so that we don't look stupid to the pet blogging community.

(We know it won't work, but we're willing to give it a try.)

Doesn't seem like a very promising business plan for a media company to tell people to ignore what you are doing or face lawsuits.

Open Source Media, eh?

Based on their copyright notice, I would say the name is false advertising.
