Updated FR Excerpt and Link Only or Deny Posting List due to Copyright Complaints
April 5, 2004 | Jim Robinson

Edited on 05/27/2014 11:31:00 AM PDT by Admin Moderator. [history]

Note: Don't post anything at all from the Las Vegas Review Journal or anything from organizations run by Stevens Media, LLC or RightHaven, LLC until the lawsuit brought against us by them is resolved.

Here's an updated alphabetical list of the sites that have complained about copyright violations thus far. The posting program will only allow excerpts and or deny posting where designated from the following sites:

These sites must be excerpted and linked only [300 words or less, 1/2 the words or less for short articles]:

All McClatchy sources must be excerpted and linked.

These publishers have asked us not to allow any material at all to be posted to FR:

05/06/04 -

Received another letter from Gannett Publications, publisher of USAToday, and several other newspapers. Due to contractual arrangements they have with third-party content providers, they have denied our request to allow posting of excerpts. They will only allow the posting of titles and links.

Please do not post full text or even excerpts from the following Gannett Web sites:

GANNETT NEWSPAPERS ON THE WEB:

We will eventually add a link to this list from our posting program. In the meantime, you can find it by searching on "copyright list."


In addition to all of the above, do not post articles written by Maralyn Lois Polak per her copyright complaint. Her column usually appears on WorldNetDaily.

Also, do not post images from Corbis or Getty.

Thanks,

Jim

********Additional

New York Times must be excerpted.

All material from the Associated Press must be excerpted regardless of source (very brief excerpts). AP photos are not allowed.

Photographs, pictures, images, graphs etc may not be posted if the websites are on the lists or added in any of the posts below.

Looks to me like the latest anti-conservative attack strategy of the liberals. they hate Rush, Savage and the others on the radio, they hate Fox on TV and they hate us on the web. Well, their loss. Any site that requires registration to read the full article, I don't bother with.

Exactly. As fast as the readership of some of these crappy papers and newsmags is declining, I wouldn't think they could afford to be alientating any potential readers.

Jim Robinson:   "These publishers have asked us not to allow any material at all to be posted to FR."

Mudboy Slim:   "Can they enforce that?"

FairOpinion:   "They can't dictate to us, not to use an excerpt or discuss their articles."

Certainly, those publishers can't be relying on the copyright laws for this. What's up with that, Jim?

CHAPTER 9. Fair Use

Fair use is a copyright principle based on the belief that the public is entitled to freely use portions of copyrighted materials forpurposes of commentary and criticism. For example, if you wish to criticize a novelist, you should have the freedom to quote a portion of the novelist's work without asking permission. Absent this freedom, copyright owners could stifle any negative comments about their work.

Unfortunately, if the copyright owner disagrees with your fair use interpretation, the dispute will have to be resolved by courts or arbitration. If it's not a fair use, then you are infringing upon the rights of the copyright owner and may be liable for damages.

This is a list of people who are ashamed of what they publish. The idea that what they write and publish can be archived, is absolutely abhorrent to them.

They count upon the short attention span of most Americans and hope that nobody will do a factual check at a later date.

We may not post the full text from these sources on Free Republic, but what you do with your own computer is a different matter.

Like a Vampire, they are terrified of being exposed to the light.

Archive, archive, archive!

Did you read the article on atzlan about the four American security specialists killed in Iraq? It says, in part...

The four US mercenaries that met a cruel death in Iraq today were selling their services to the oil companies for a few bucks a month. The Iraqi people who killed them were defending their land from foreign invaders determined to loot their oil.

Anti-Americanism at its worst.

Check out this one too..

Sec. 107. - Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include -

FR Has ALWAYS been about research, criticism and commentary. This is too weird.

"...I didn't want to spend the rest of my live in depositions and court hearings..."

I can appreciate that, and it's not like sticking your finger into Justin Raimando's eye is going to advance any of your goals with your FreeRepublic website.

On the other hand, being subject to frivolous lawsuits is more a matter of being alive and breathing, rather than having actually committed any kind of civil wrong. In the end, each person has to decide for himself where to draw the line between threats of lawsuits and their own personal goals.

Apparently this also means that you can't buy a newspaper, and sit around a break room with your co-workers and read and discuss the articles, either.

I expect a crackdown on this obvious violation of Fair Use...

This is pretty bad.....they can report, but we can't discuss. OKAY...

There was a thread awhile ago, in which someone quoted a so called anti-freeper...who had written to a news website that had a poll on it. The gist of it was "dear website you have officially been freeped". They proceeded to explain why...and if I recall correctly, the website explained how the poll was tilted as a result.

I'm totally convinced that people that don't like FR write and complain to every single source used for discussion..hoping to get a negative reaction towards FR.

Obviously, these sites know of the growing number of members FR has. FR is becoming one of the biggest political forums on the Internet, and these sites want to get some of FR's hits. Through all the years FR has been in circulation with the exception of LA and WP, they haven't complained. However, the number of sites wanting to get direct hits from freepers is growing.
