Saudi newspaper ignores Creative Commons

Sabq is not the only “Saudi Online Newspaper” that steals content from content creators and never credits them.

Alweeam has ignored the Creative Commons: Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported mentioned here. The CC means that you are free to share under the condition that you should attribute the work.

They have embedded the following video (video take from Saudi Arabia’s National Day celebration in 2009) without any attribution.

Even Alarabiya news channel is doing it. Same video posted on their site (WMV video).

I shared a similar video last year here with attribution to it’s content owner of course.
