Mag copies blog; wants blog to pay

Here’s an odd one. A US cooking magazine lifted an article on applie pie from a cook’s blog and printed it all. When the blogger complained for breach of copyright and demanded payment and an apology, the magazine claimed it’s the blogger who should pay, for the fine work in editing the magazine did. Copyright is attached to any intellectual property; the magazine is trying to  bluff it’s way out, but it should pay up.
