But apparently, this company is distributing the release through an agency that takes ownership of the release themselves. At the bottom of the release is the following:
Articles in this section are primarily provided directly by the companies appearing or PR agencies which are solely responsible for the content. The companies concerned may use the above content on their respective web sites provided they link back to [agency site].
So the company the release is about has to get permission to publish their own release???
Has anyone dealt with a situation like this?
