Crime Does Not Pay, but Somebody Thinks Crime.Com Might
Even though APB News is a financial flop, CourtTV and the producer of COPS are teaming up to compete with it. While it'll probably lack APB's serious investigative journalism, CrimeWeb's site does let you order a criminal background check online on anyone you want. I tried it, and now I know the real reason Neale lives in Australia. ;-}

Damn! You see a market opening, you get and there and really take it. It's going to be hard to own it, but APB and CourtTV did a good job of opening it up.

News Break: APB News has just been named Best News Site by the National Press Club. The award brings with it a $1000 cash prize... I can see the new Business Model: support your web site on the cash that comes with winning prestigious awards...
