Don’t Digg this

November 28, 2006

Steve Rubel reports on yet another example of Digg coming after mashup and fan sites that dare use the word “digg” in their title. You just can’t be a good Web 2.0 citizen and go around threatening to sue everyone…it just shouldn’t and doesn’t work that way. I’m just waiting till they sue a site with the word “digger” in it. We’ve got a pile of great diggers here, many of which could do a great raid on Digg’s headquarters I guess….and given that with recent reports that US spies are spying on Australian businesses and using this information to benefit American businesses, we’d be edging close to being in some sort of conflict with the Yanks anyway I’d guess. Bring it on 🙂
