+ - Yahoo apologizes to the bloggers

Submitted by

evuraan writes "Contents from a handful of Indian bloggers were used without permission on Yahoo's India's new Malayalam-language Web portal. This sparked an online protest among bloggers. A Yahoo spokeswoman said the reproduction of the content was inadvertent and blamed the incident on a company it hired to develop content for its Web site, Webdunia.com (India) Pvt. Ltd. Yahoo asked the content provider to remove the recipes when it learned of the incident and Webdunia has been in contact with the woman to apologize, the spokeswoman said. Bloggers, however, were also demanding an apology from Yahoo. The company planned to post a statement on its Malayalam Web site later Thursday, the spokeswoman said, which reads, in part: "Yahoo respects the blogging community and the etiquette followed by bloggers. We regret any inconvenience caused by the inadvertent posting of the recipe without attribution." The content is provided to Yahoo with the understanding that Webdunia holds all necessary rights to its use, the company said."
