Thanks Jim. Being somewhat new here, is there any facility on this site that automatically scans the publication title to make sure the rules are being followed? It sure would be rather cumbersome for us to scan a list like this every time we post a news article.

I wonder if they sent the same kind of letters to DU, or Bartcop, or smirking chimp, etc.

You might want to make a "sticky" of all the pubs we have to excerpt or just link too. Would be convenient.

I don't think I've read The Onion since their complaint. The posts here used to remind me to go to their site to read other articles. I wonder how much web traffic these newspapers lose after a complaint. Do they send these letters out to other web pages?

The Arizona Repugnant also leans far to the left. I wonder if the rest of them do too. At least there are no TV or radio stations on there. I know that the same company owns KPNX Channel 12 TV here in Phoenix.

I've been around here for a while, but I never have figured out where the rules are posted. I know there was another prohibited list posted a while back but it seems to have disappeared.

SUX...I MEAN SUX!

I'm really getting tired of this silly, nitpicking, short-sighted junk. Do they have a similar policy with say Google, or Drudge or any of the myriad of websites that post news summaries?

I'm still bitchy enough after the Specter primary win to fire a letter off and tell 'em I'll never buy one of their papers again.

OOoooooo.....I'm mad....need...more...coffee...

Well, long term these papers may lose more than Free Republic does in the bargain. I'm sure most of these half ass publications have little to lure readers to their sites anyway. So, by limiting citations to bare links, they have doomed themselves to obscurity.

I won't post even one excerpt from one of their stupid papers.

They must not want any hits on their sites anymore.

Fine with me.

But if I see even one LEFT wing site or any neutral site that's getting away with it, I'm going to scream bloody murder.

It would seem that the Clinton war on online conservative news forums was just a prelude.

I don't quite understand the prohibition on excerpts, since that is legally protected under Fair Use, but it sure seems that -- if this nonsense keeps up -- we'll have an easier time keeping a list of sites we CAN use rather than a list of ones we can't.

So just to be clear in my mind:

If we find the story on the web by googling, and use the "cache" link on google, for example, that's ok?

I'm inclined to agree with ACP here. Why send them traffic if they think they're "too good" to be excerpted on FR? Just make a wholesale embargo on those domains.

Silly me, that only applies in special circumstances.

Not here of course.

I'm pretty sure that short excerpts would be covered under Fair Use. In any case, if you see a story you want to post, go to news.google.com and see if another site has the same story. If you see another site linking to one of these papers, point out that they don't allow excerpts. That might cause fewer people to link to these papers. Send fewer hits there way and they'll probably change their policies.

No excerpting? How about paraphrasing (with accreditation). Certainly it is nothing that other media sites aren't already doing.

Fair use provisions of the US Constitution mean nothing to the left. Remember this the next time someone brings up the "First Ammendment".

I'd say forward any and all leftist excerpts to the legal staff at those websites. Since newbies are not permitted to post at DUh, the articles posted there are from genuine RedDUpes.

Maybe we should all call any of these local papers and tell them we are either canceling our subscription or boycotting their advertisers if they don't allow posting of an excerpt. I KNOW that would wake up some local business people who advertise with these pukes. You could call me but I have already pulled all my advertising from all papers. I now use direct advertising. It works better anyway.

Call their advertisers. That WILL work. They are already having trouble getting people to advertise with them once they figure out that direct advertising is a better and less expensive way to do it. I pulled all of mine from all newspapers when they started trashing President Bush in the last election. And don't forget to tell them why. Business people do care about their customers. Newspapers never really did until they started getting calls to cancel advertising. They always thought that people couldn't get their news from anywhere else so screw you. BIG FAT DO YOU WANT TO BET?!

It's a matter of FR's legal warchest vs. that of Big Liberal Media. Either some eccentric billionaire endows FR to take this clear to the Supreme Court or it will become an emasculated shadow of its old self.

Well, I just visited the Battle Creek Enquirer website for the last time. It's a rag that I quit paying to read a long time ago.

I will no longer give them a click, either.

Ironically, I posted an article from them a couple of days ago - just a sweet local-interest piece about some kids visiting Air Force One.

I emailed a large Midwest newspaper about a particular Left-wing website which posts full-text articles from their rag. I pointed out that their copyright policy (which of course they have fully enforced against us) forbade such activity, and provided 3 specific links from within the last month.

The upper level contact emailed me back that preventing such activity was very difficult, and would probably take almost a year to correct.

His email was clearly a lie.

I say we start Freeping the Net to shut down ANY other site which engages in activity which is forbidden here. Let's see the media liars go up against their own illegitimate spawn.
