Wal-Mart Warns Over Black Friday Websites

It's become a holiday tradition!  That's to say, early postings of "Day After Thanksgiving" sales (also known as Black Friday), particularly with regards to Wal-Mart.  Wal-Mart has warned that posters had better "watch out."  As opposed to Santa looking for bad behavior, Wal-Mart will be looking.

Wal-Mart's lawyers have an early holiday message for Web sites that post Black Friday ads ahead of their official release date: Don't do it.

Wal-Mart Stores said on Friday that its lawyers have sent letters to the Web sites, saying publishing the ads before their official November 19 release date violates Wal-Mart's copyrights and other rights.

To police the web sites, Wal-Mart has outsourced the effort to China, where workers will be paid 10 cents per site they take down.  No, not really, but it wouldn't surprise us.

Short answer: Because they treat their employees so devilishly! Some eye-opening reading HERE and HERE.

This is pretty much standard practices for a business that want's to be competative in the market. I'm sure before the Internet was huge, newspapers and TV stations were given the same warnings about their upcoming advertisements.

Walmart has fallen from being a company that everyone enjoys to what it really is.

Go look for that documentary on Wal-Mart and tell me you wanna shop there again. Not only that, you would love to work for them.

None of that surprises me in the least. Personally I prefer Target, they always have the latest PC games and they go on sale often!
