Why oh Why?

Could someone, anyone explain to me why the Business Review Weekly publishes their text content as flash, or some other you know, non HTML format? It's insane right? Or am I?

Probably they don’t want you to copy their text?

an attempt to stop "unauthorised" distribution of its content.

I agree the lawyers are involved, we might steal their pretty content being the master mind criminals that we all are. ;)

I'm in a good mood so I'm going to assume it's because they want to help you with your touch-typing skills. By typing it out again, you improve not only your typing but yr leet spellzor/grammr skillz. Nice BRW. Kind BRW. *pats BRW*

Or it could be because they DON'T want you to do any free advertising for them - you know, copying a line or two and then linking to them - because they are shy and deem themselves of being unworthy to be associated with this fine blog. Sweet BRW. Shy BRW. *pats BRW again*

These explanations make about as much sense as any trad media reason for locking up content. :P
