Two new tools "could potentially reshape how content is distributed and monetized on the web," Forbes reports. Scribd Store, from the company Scribd, uses a secure widget to help publishers control who is redistributing their content and keep bloggers and others from posting the raw text of an article. Meanwhile, the start-up Attributor asks publishers to upload all their content into the company's servers, which then search the web for the same strings of words.
