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.

Thanks so much for the ping, Tonk. I could have easily screwed up without this list. I had no idea we'd gotten to so many. *grin*

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.

Not so surprising on Sun Sentinel, being a Tribune property, same ownership as LA Times.

Yes. But there are not many on that list worth linking to.

Who in their right mind would want to post a Reuters story, if there was another source? They are the most consistently warped, biased news service around.

and they hate us on the web

Who needs 'em? That muffled protest you hear is the sound of their last dying gasp.

***As an example, just a week or two ago I excerpted an article from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (not normally required) because they had picked it up from the Washington Post (where it had originated).***

Just to clarify, are you saying that the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reprinted the Washington Post article in toto? As in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review VIA the Washington Post?

Also, some people get TOO enthusiastic and excerpt everything.

It looks as though that might be a good idea, actually.

I'm not sure about the sites that don't allow us to post anything however - seems as though that would be harder to justify.

How is this being handled at other sites that post and discuss news? And are the publishers also complaining about those other sites?

That's common in the newspaper industry - they have agreements in place to do it legally.

This is getting more and more complicated. Are we who have resorted to simply excerpting supposed to check in with this list every time before we put something up? This is all part of why I don't bother posting full articles any more. I don't want to step on someone's proverbial toes.
They're jerks, one and all!
So much for critiquing an article too. The author can say anything they want with no rebuttal whatsoever if you can't even use a statistic, "fact" or statement they've said in an article! Replying to it would require that you put the information up and then the belly aching would commence.
A very sly, effective way of silencing your critics is how I see it.
