ProPublica: Steal This Story

ProPublica, the nonprofit newsroom, just made it easier for anyone to 'steal' their content, legally and for free. Just click the "republish" button on any story and they'll throw some HTML your way.

We're covered under a Creative Commons license and our basic rules remain the same -- the content is free, but you have to credit us, include all the links in the story, and you cannot edit the piece.

The Guardian just did the same thing, introducing old-school syndication to the web. Read the full story at ProPublica.
