If in fact they are excerpting without permission, publicizing that fact to the source from whom they are excerpting, might "Remedy" the situation.
Of course, I wouldn't mention that you happen to know from this website that the excerpted source forbids it.
A news outlet can certainly demand (and possibly get) whatever it wants based on copyright of its materials. However, if it does not do so uniformly, its discriminatory practices may be actionable (you'd *have* to ask a lawyer about that one), and in any case *definitely* represent censorship, which charge should promptly be hurled at whatever leftist rag did it, if only for the fun of watching them try to squirm out of looking like the ethically bankrupt leftist schumerhole that they undoubtedly are...
So if you *catch* them protesting *our* posting their material, and can prove that they are allowing DUh to print it *without* protest, they may be in trouble...
Meanwhile, it's clear that I don't completely understand how the system here works. I tried posting something from one of the Gannett papers, and got a window refusing the posting. But it wouldn't let me post it even when I removed *all* the body of the article, excerpting *nothing*, leaving only the title and the link, which I thought it was OK to do. What gives?
What gives is we don't have an option for title and link only. Doesn't make much sense in a discussion forum so I'd rather just go without Gannett's blather.
(and see no need to supply them with hits)
Point of clarification (because I almost failed Con Law...oh well). When the DUmmies claim that they are being censored because Conservative radio stations, casino owners, etc ban liberal musicians, don't we usually have to explain to them (like the two-year olds that they are) that it's not censorship if it isn't government doing the "shutting-up?"
I really don't think there is much difference here. Publishers are free to have their material printer or reprinted wherever and whenever they choose.
Like someone else said though, Most of thise Gannett and other papers are nothing but librul trash anyways.
