I think she's full of it. She's sorry because she got caught. If she truly believed it wasn't right, she wouldn't have written the email that spawned the hatred.
If she truly believed it wasn't right, she would made the apology, paid the $130 and be done with it. Instead she wrote what has to be the most jackass-ish email of 2010. THAT'S what cost her. And i hope it costs her greatly. I feel no sympathy for her in the least.
20 or even 10 years ago she would have won this battle and no one would have known the story. Today that doesn't work anymore. She's a relic of the old guard soon to die off.
Article also says "Griggs said she's no expert on the finer points of copyright law:. Apparently she thinks she IS an expert. Proclaiming everything on teh web as public domain.
Again...what cause the backlash is not the screwup of taking the content...it was the derogatory, snarky email that followed...
