Money for nothing?
Lawyers in Brussels appear to have come up with a wheeze to avoid paying costly subscription fees to US financial news provider Bloombergs. The agency’s local competition reporter sends a round robin email to any lawyer that wants to be included on the list with all his stories as they are published. One lawyer said he almost choked with laughter earlier this year when a Bloombergs salesman approached his company offering to sell the same news to the firm for $1,500 A MONTH. Evidently the trick is being repeated with other hacks though one wonders what Bloombergs paying clients make of it.
