US Media stop e-reader Zite

business Updated: Mar 31, 2011 21:45 IST

Nearly a dozen media companies, including The Washington Post, Dow Jones and the Associated Press, sent a cease-and-desist letter to e-reader application Zite on Wednesday, saying the company’s practice of reusing and aggregating their content infringes their copyrights.

Zite describes itself as a free personalised magazine for the iPad tablet computer. Earlier this month, Zite said it received 1,00,000 downloads of its applications in its first week.
