What are the Intellectual Property Rights boundaries for revenue-generating blogs that recycle others' work?

What's the legality of sites like the new sploid.com (discussed today here
, with my regrettably too harsh comments about the post) a for-profit website that basically, besides having a splashy front-page, just links to other websites? If Denton blogs really make $75,000 in advertising a year, how can they justify the revenue they make off the content of their site without giving a cut to the sites that they link to? Gawker, Wonkette and Defamer all rely on original content, and should be entitled to what they make, but this just seems like pillaging.
