“This is called stealing content?there’s no advantage to me to have them steal,” commented Laurel Touby, founder and CEO of media industry site mediabistro.com
Certainly Vast is not alone in convincing classified sites that they’re helping them bring new visitors, but if the classified search engines are to see a bright future, they’ll need to secure strong partnerships with their partner sites.
