This article from today's New York Times pictures(without any sort of credit) the recipe of the day from the Foodvision.com site that my company built. I don't know if they asked for permission from Foodvision to picture it, but it's for that reason that I don't really like services like the ones discussed in this article. They take a small snippet from a Web site and picture it out of the context that the site intended that content to be show. It's sort of involuntary reverse syndication. I guess the argument would be that this gets your site a visitor and exposure, but I would argue that without the context of the site it really doesn't benefit the content provider in a commercial environment very much.
