Search engines challenged on ‘theft’

It seems some newspaper and magazine publishers are getting annoyed at internet search engines and news aggregators for "unfairly exploiting their content", according to this Financial Times article – which I found thanks to Newsgator. In this instance, therefore, far from exploiting the FT‘s content, Newsgator has enabled me to view an FT article (and some adverts) that I would otherwise have missed. At this level, it seems quite a good symbiotic relationship to me.
