Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Our item yesterday about a Denver Post-related copyright-infringement lawsuit against a blogger for re-publishing an entire Mike Rosen column drew some snarky remarks.

For instance, one reader thinks Rosen does pretty much the same kind of thing in his role as radio host for KOA.

Rain writes:

This is the same Mike Rosen who habitually reads ENTIRE COLUMNS from other writers on his radio show, right? The guy who reposts articles and images wholesale on his own website under the heading "Rosen Files"?

That guy? He's the one they decide to use as the test case?
