MSM Wars

I've seen a bunch of links on this story:
The Tulsa World copyrights its entire newspaper and specifically each of the articles and/or editorials at issue. The reproductionof any articles and/or editorials (in whole or in part) on your website or linking your website to Tulsa World content is without the permission of the Tulsa World and constitutes an intentional infringement of the Tulsa World's copyright and other rights to the exclusive use and distribution of the copyrighted materials.

via Instapundit, the Volokh Conspiracy and a slew of others.

Okay, if they're talking a wholesale cut-and-paste of an article, or the entire paper, that's one thing, but a cease and desist on linking? That's so beyond the pale it's comical.
