Barack Obama showed why he's one of the most requested speakers on the political circuit Saturday night. He headlined the Humphrey Day Dinner -- raising about $250,000 in profit for the DFL.

We have clips of the speech as well as some other interviews. Listen in as Wendy Wilde talks with many of the notables that were at the dinner, including former Vice-President Walter Mondale as well as several of the candidates for the 5th Congressional District seat being vacated by Martin Sabo.

Check back later for video clips and the full Barack Obama speech.

Yup. And we have the screen captures of the photo to prove it. I see you've added a © symbol to your site. How ironic!

Oh...this old chestnut. The sad part is I don't think you're joking.

Have the Star Tribune and the copyright owners of all those other articles you republish wholesale sold you their rights so you can copyright the content?

Thousands of unemployed lawyers and you're giving out legal advice for free.

Thousand of journalists forced out of work by media consolidation and you worsen the situation by stealing from the companies that pay them. Shame on you for taking food from their mouths.

When my former employer shut down because of media consolidation I spent the next two years (without pay) making sure each and every one of them found a job. It's people like you who steal rob and plunder other people's material that makes a bad situation even worse.

Copyright infringement is not a victimless crime. I've seen the faces and seen families struggle because of it. A crime in the name of "free speech" is still a crime when someone is harmed. As the old saying goes, your right to free speech ends when your fist meets my nose.

What irks me is it would be so simple for you to live within the law. Mere links to articles and photos instead of wholesale unauthorized reprinting. But instead to increase your traffic (and rob from others) you violate copyright and put more financial pressure on American and Minnesota companies to cut jobs.

Are you responsible for all of that? No way. But if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. And the first step in solving any problem is identifying it... and your practices are the problem.

Does the Associated Press know you steal their stuff? I've negotiated contracts with them before. You really don't want to tangle with their legal department.

The silence of "the thief" here is deafening.
