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.

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.

Yep....and I guess they want to make sure no one perceives them that way. I don't think they have any worries about that.

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.
