Maybe six or seven years ago, media organizations were screaming and wetting their pants about how unfair it was that the Internet was giving all the news away for "free." There were even lawsuits being floated against news aggregator sites.

Nowadays, those same news organizations have the gall to ask readers to send in their images, videos and written accounts of breaking news events . . . for "free." They're banking on, correctly, people being naive enough not to realize they're basically forfeiting their copyright to that material. People really need to be reminded they have a right to be compensated for their submissions.

That's my advice, and it's "free."
