Huffington Post UK - feedback please!

The Huffington Post launched a UK edition at the beginning of July: see www.huffingtonpost.co.uk

The Freelance is interested to discover how it's treating contributors. At the time of writing they're still advertising for a senior Blogs Editor so perhaps we have to wait to find out the details. We haven't yet found terms and conditions for unsolicited submissions online.

So, if you've dealt with HuffPost UK please tell us how it went. What rights do they want? What do they pay? How are they about negotiating rights? You can submit a report directly, in confidence, to the Rate for the Job or email HuffPo@londonfreelance.org.

If we're initially sceptical, it's because of the lawsuit brought by bloggers for $105 million, which they estimate is the contribution made by their unpaid submissions to the price for which America Online bought the Huffington Post.
