I had an article published in the Christian Science Monitor a few weeks back. This morning, I googled myself (okay, I was really bored). I discovered that a newspaper called the Tri State Monitor had reprinted my article verbatim.

Can they do this? Can I do anything about it? I know some of my previous articles have been posted to people's blogs, and I like that. But it seems to me an actual newspaper should contact me for reprint rights. And maybe even pay me a few bucks.
