What's the LEGAL thing about? If USA publishes something (anything), it's out there and fair game.
FR settled a law suit with the Washington Post and LA Times a few years ago that forbids us from posting entire articles (full length of story) from those publications here on FR. There is a little info on the lower part of the FR home page. Other publications have been added to that list with various conditions, which must include USAT. There was a FR post with all the info, I had it bookmarked but apparently cleaned it off my links page. If you are ambitious or anyone else has it bookmarked, please re-post.
