[Snap Module] Article view module

Can we get a module that will take the text of an article on a website and just put it here on Snapzu? I'd rather just read it here, especially when I don't feel like giving the company hosting it views. What I'm thinking of is something similar to "Readability" or Evernote's "Clearly" function.

Thoughts?

EDIT: I want to be clear, there would definitely be somewhere to link to the original source.

    There would at the very least have to be a link back to the original source as well as credit given to the author/company. Like /u/jmcs has mentioned, just taking the content from a page and hosting it will likely infringe copyright.

      Definitely, I didn't mean put it here with no idea where it came from. There should definitely be a link to the actual article either at the top or bottom, or even as the main link. Sorry for the confusion.

    This can be seen as an incentive to copyright infringement, specially because the kind of companies that don't deserve views are usually lead be very aggressive assholes.

    You could do something like a javascript auto submission to an archive system like archive.is and create a link to the archive. This could function as both a caching mechanism for content hosted on shaky server and a workaround for sites you'd rather not visit directly for one reason or another. It would probably be best implemented in an addon like SE rather than the main site unless there is a legal team on retainer already. =)
