It’s Finke Vs. Waxman In Hollywood Feud

Nikki Finke‘s Deadline.com has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Sharon Waxman‘s TheWrap.com, claiming that TheWrap writers are thieves. The letter accuses TheWrap.com of repurposing Deadline.com’s exclusive content.

As our sister blog FishbowlLA reports, the letter doesn’t mention “any specific instances of intellectual theft,” rather claims a pattern of “widespread, systematic repurposing.”

But, the letter seems to imply, TheWrap has bigger problems:
“While we recognize that TheWrap News Inc. (WNI) is faced with the challenge of constant staff turnover, we strongly recommend that WNI take this problem seriously, investigate TheWrap.com’s journalistic practices, and establish guidelines, checks and balances that will hopefully prevent, not encourage, future infringement.”

Ouch.
