Hoo boy. We're just going to hide out in Miss Kitty's room, lest we get caught in tonight's saloon gunfight between Edmunds "Take That, Tree Killer" Inside Line and Car "We Bitchslapped the Interweb" and Driver. Following today's high-profile online reveal of C&D's copyrighted layout imagery of the Jaguar C-XF concept — and subsequent pre-legal-action phonecalls to sites involved — Edmunds outflanked the buff mag by posting said images — which had been embargoed by Ford PR — on its Straightline blog. The incident lays bare heightening tensions between print pubs struggling to maintain an advantage and the Internet's push to set information free. Make ours a double.
