Bert Archer has an interesting piece up on the Toronto Standard about the ethics of aggregation in light of the whole Romenesko-Poynter-attribution uproar.

“If this sort of thing were done in a news story,” he writes, “it would be plagiarism.” There’s only one thing keeping it from being so cut-and-dry: “Romenesko wasn’t writing news stories.”

And that, of course, is where it gets sticky. Head on over to the Toronto Standard for Archer’s take on ethical aggregating.
