Notice: We have been threatened by a blog pimp
Received via email

Since you are blocking posting privileges for our readers we are citing you for copyright violation.

One of your posters has re-published an original article in its entirety. This is stealing intellectual property from a non-profit organization. Either pull it down or hear from the lawyers.

You have 24 hours and you are now obligated to prove that it was removed. If you do not respond we will commence with legal action.

"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." -- George Orwell

The New Media Journal is a division of BasicsProject.org, a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) research and education initiative whose mission is the reintroduction of the American citizenry to our constitutional ideology and to educate the public on critical issues facing our nation, chiefly, the threats of radical Islam and the advancing American Fifth Column.

Guaranteed.

BTW: The blog section causes problems every single day. It is not a happy situation. If new rules are in place perhaps they should go back the way they were. Nobody seems satisfied, neither bloggers nor FReepers.

My $.02.

I don’t post many articles but I use excerpts for what I do post, just in case.

Here’s what I bookmarked for reference though:

I think the list just got longer :)

He could have had thousands of new readers checking out his blog.

There was a poster 'NewMediaJournal' that incessantly posted articles from there that were actually from other sources, such as the NY Times and the WSJ - but the poster would link back to NewMediaJournal instead of the original source. Pretty shameless way to pimp your blog - with someone else's material.

I guess not everyone understands how to obtain free advertising while protecting their proprietary rights. All they had to do was request that we use brief excerpts only; please use proper attribution and correct web address in citation; please visit us, click on our advertisers’ links, etc. Not too smart of them, especially when there’s so much competition and their business model is still evolving.

I have seen several of their posts and read, usually with much agreement, the articles after following a link to the site.
This is unfortunate. But clearly if someone posted the entire copyrighted content without permission they not only violated FR rules, but the copyright law.
We cannot allow other media to control the fundamental mission of FR either.

A necessary decision we should honor.

“The New Media Journal is a division of BasicsProject.org, a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) research and education initiative”

Does this mean Frank Salvato works for free? Seems like someone with such ideals and convictions as mentioned in the byline would want to use every means possible to spread the word from their site, unless someone was earning a living from it.
