I saw this at the end of a news article, on BusinessWeek's website:

"Copyright 2006, by The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed."

Huh? How can something be copyrighted if I rewrite it? Isn't that the point of copyright? If it changes, it's no longer the original material?

As for "may not be published", what the hell? It's a news article and is meant to be published. And isn't BusinessWeek at fault for publishing copyrighted material?

I give up!
