Print takes on the web in China

There has been much talk of late about the impact of the internet on print media.

No such problems over in China, where a new low budget gossip mag is being produced entirely from material lifted from the internet.

Net News Weekly is anything but embarrassed about the source of its stories. It even features a browser window in its layout.

Believe it or not it’s all completely legit. A text box on the back pages invites people whose work has turned up in the mag to write in for their contribution fees.
