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.
