SEC and Merrill Lynch court documents on Scribd, news outlets embed

September 14, 2009 • in the news

Today The New York Times and Silicon Alley Insider embedded the official New York federal district ruling (from Scribd) in their articles about the rejected SEC-Merrill Lynch settlement. (If approved, the settlement would have allowed Merrill Lynch to use $33 million of shareholders’ money to pay a SEC fine that Merrill Lynch owes for secretly doling out $3.6 billion in executive bonuses right before Bank of America acquired them.)

This is another sign that Scribd is now the original source destination for many of the world’s biggest newspapers and media companies, including Chicago Tribune, FOX Business, and The New York Times Dealbook.
