The Trireme Award - www.opendemocracy.net

Trireme Award This month’s Trireme Award - for "the worst terms since I was last chained to the oars" - goes to OpenDemocracy.org for offering $0. "No expenses. Not taxed at source," the member reporting the rate announces, perhaps with a touch of sarcasm. Of course OpenDemocracy is a Good Cause: but so was the Huffington Post, built on the backs of unpaid bloggers: see this report.

Further checking reveals that at least OpenDemocracy says authors generally keep copyright and though it wants the right to syndicate for one year it will split income.
