Digg doesn’t have DRM

Hey AOL just copied Digg. I don’t think this is immoral or illegal. It is perfectly OK, just it is cheezy. It will definitely not be cool or trendy as Digg is. Newsvine that is also affected is taking it calm and while I can’t locate story, it seems that Diggers are not taking it that calm.

This will be good for Digg in long run as it will bring them ton of traffic as AOL will promote social news and as more people hear about Digg, they will naturally want to see this site as well. It could be good for Newsvine as well if they could get their name recognized more. For some reason I never found that site appealing, although site is clean and seems to work OK.

I think a little controversy is always healthy, in short term it will help AOL site and in long, I think Digg will greatly benefit from this. Hey, how everyone talks about this new AOL site, Digg like, copy of Digg… Digg, Digg everywhere. Links to Digg, Newsvine, Netscape .
