I clicked a story from Instapundit on bedbugs and noticed that the source of the story, Business Insider, has an extremely useful array of icons under each story. The one titled, “Embed,” intrigued me because we bloggers are accustomed to embedding videos from YouTube, cat photos from icanhazcheeseburger.com and PDFs from Scribd, but embedding a post? Check out Business Insider’s explanation here.

This is a positive development because suing bloggers for copyright infringement for quoting too extensively has become a new stream-of-income for some newspapers. See Little Miss Attila and Laura at Ace of Spades HQ for more — Laura links Clayton Cramer’s instructions on how to use Firefox to blacklist the newspapers doing this.
