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

Posted on 04/05/2004 3:53:42 PM PDT by 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.

I think FR is being singled out. I see articles from these places posted in Yahoo groups and other websites all the time. None of them (to my knowledge) has ever been threatened in this way.

It's growing because these lying pieces of scum media know we are on to them.

Sorry but I had to vent.

We can still paraphrase what they said and make our points.

Perhaps the Link at the top of the Admin Moderator's profile page could be modified to point to this thread (it's pointing to the older list).

It's an easy way (for some of us, um, seasoned folk) to remember where to find the taboo sites list.

Oh I am so sure none of this is personal! Nope, no politics involved at all! I canceled Vanity Fair magazine! I don't want their trash if this is the way they feel. I heard one of their main "journalists" Gail Sheehy on that antiwar radio station we have here bashing the war and the President last week!

And before everyone rushes off to check it out, studlife.com is a website about student life at Washington University in St Louis.




Of course I had to check:
Husband is a graduate of their medical school;
not that 'stud' and 'husband' can't compute.

I couldn't agree with you more. If they refuse us on copyright grounds, then every other discussion site should be held to the same standard.

It might also be a great argument for our side - if we do have to go back to court - which I'm sure will happen as long as we "draw breath" as a conservative website. Sorry Jim, but you have to admit FR is in their cross hairs.

They can't very well limit us without limiting all, can they?

There is something spooky about not being able to post the articles or even post links to some of the articles.

There is absolutely NOTHING preventing a link to their articles, even if they complain. To even suggest that, and I don't think any of them have, is legally absurd. Link all you want.

Well, what would happen if we linked to a liberal forum that had the article in question posted in its entirety? That would be amusing.

If I'm not mistaken, I think they're part of the LAT/WP empire.

A good amount of URLs on that list are under the LAT/WP umbrella. Newsday is one that I can remember as LAT owned.

I said it before, I'll go them one better and never go to their websites at all.

I know this is the hard way, but if I saw an important article at one of these places, I did a search and tried to find that article at it's original non banned source. It works sometimes as those people at the LAT/WP don't write everything.

You cannot prevent anyone from discussing articles by anyone.

There ARE legal definitions & restrictions for "Fair Use" and if those are followed, those "useful idiots" have no recourse in law - unless they have the ear of the 9th Circus Court, but who gives a damned about their opinions?

So someone doesn't like Freepers discussing their PUBLIC articles? Too ****** bad! We can, AND SHOULD, bring stupidity, immorality, and treasonous behaviors to light. We may not be allowed to quote extensively an article, but there is NO LEGAL BASIS to prevent a discussion - THAT is call our FIRST AMENDMENT!

Yeah, sometimes that works.
But ya gotta watch-out for the other way around as well.
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).

Things may get to the point where all that's practical is the link itself and a short precis of what's there. I don't think anyone could object to that!

Jim Rob's point is that even if we are still in the right, that won't stop them from constantly dragging him to court anyway. It's better just to avoid these people so they don't even have a basis for a legal complaint.

I'm wondering about how we can "blog" some of these articles where we don't link but retell and analyze what the person wrote, only in our own words. It will take some work, but I'm sure we would be kind to them. ( Ha Ha )

Sounds more like Cockroaches objecting to the light being turned on than anything else ---- but as you ask I'll try and follow. Bookmarked. Keep us informed when the next cockroach complains.

Ummmmm, ... wonder if Hannity, Rush, Laura Ingram, etc.... would like to know about this little bit and ask why other than "Copyright" reasons the cockroaches object?

I'm not too clever so please bear with me.

Can you refer to an article you have read and the date it was published? Can you paraphrase the article and cover the salient points?

Can you suggest that someone read it?

As a workaround for the "expired or altered link" problem, I suggest that if an article is especially interesting to you, you cut and paste a copy into a Word document and file it in your own archives. It's not perfect but it can be a valuable comparative archive copy should the piece mysteriously change or disappear.

Yes he is. A couple of years ago he nicely asked us not to post full articles, but do excerpts so he would get hits on his website.

FR gladly obliged him.

I think this is where Fair Use just has to come in. They can't dictate to us, not to use an excerpt or discuss their articles.

Makes you go "Hmmmm" when some of these organizations don't want people to discuss their writings (AIM.org, antiwar.com, etc.).

Rats and roaches hide when the light of truth shines.

I wonder if these "do not excerpt" writers have made the same demand of Rush Limbaugh.
