Reader's Digest Brouhaha

While the Reader's Digest Association considers bankruptcy, it's also getting flack from some disgruntled emotional freelancers over two of its magazines that use "repurposed" content. Folio: reports here on the freelancin' controversy. (Seems to me that reuse of the material would or would not be clearly covered in any freelance contract they signed, no? If it wasn't in the contract, then the freelancers have a beef. If it was in the contract, then they have nothing to complain about.)

For more on the possible bankruptcy filing (and its tiny $2.1 billion in debt!), see this New York Post report.
