UPDATE: The New York Times now says it’s linking to our article.
How dishonorable that The New York Times doesn’t properly credit us for our scoop last week, Summit Expressing “Very Preliminary” Interest In Miramax Name & Film Library, which was posted 3 full days ahead of the newspaper’s story that went online Sunday. We were first to break the news that Disney was entertaining bids for the Miramax name and library, and that Summit was expressing preliminary interest, and that the price is around $800 million (although the feeling is its actual worth is closer to $500M because studio library values have taken a hit as DVD/video has flattened.) And yet the NYT intends to charge for content that’s both late and borrowed. Sheesh!
