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 know there are legal considerations, but what happens is, the original story disappears, and things I have bookmarked to keep are only stuck with an excerpt.

Also, some people get TOO enthusiastic and excerpt everything.

I read an article a week or so ago that Reuters is disallowing any unauthorized postings of their news articles. They are claiming copyright violation.

Thank you Jim for this consolidated list. Excerpting for no reason seems to be rampant lately. Maybe this list will help.

For those articles that must be excerpted, I'd like to request that FReepers, when possible, link to the "printer friendly" version of the article. Way fewer graphics to wade through and hardly ever any popup ads. Those of us stuck in "56K" hell thank you :)

Those "Tribune" affiliates ~ one of their member is currently subject to a RICO investigation.

'Nuff said on that until they come down with the indictments that name names.

Once they get into the trials betcha' the Tribune people will lose their focus on allegations of copyright violations.

They are all practicing a form of self-censorship...very revealing. I suppose it is because many of them are afraid of principled, reasoning, conservative people discussing their stories and exposing many of those stories for what they are.

Says much as to what a number of these organizations would be like to other viewpoints if they ever really had any true reign of power. Heck, many of them can't stand their own messages seeing the light of day and truth...what do you think they would do to contrary opinions if given the chance?

Are we going to take this to court again. There is something spooky about not being able to post the articles or even post links to some of the articles. There is a dislike of being tracked or held accountable here....

No. Just hope they spell our name right when they use our material. Every time we're mentioned in the press (favorable or not) it brings in a lot of new posters.

Ok. But, of course, that brings up an entirely different question, like why the heck do they care about being cited on FR? Weird. But kudos to the genius who got the studlife.com URL for them.

I can understand the ones that only will allow excerpts with links. Makes sense since they want hits to their websites.

But the small list of cowards that don't want even mentioned shows how small their minds are. I wonder if they send out spies to cocktail parties to make sure no one mentions them there also! lol

I'll also say this. When I was a PAC treasurer for a certain organization, anytime one of our press releases or stories came out, our Exec Director wanted it posted here.

More readers see it, then go to our site to see what else goes on.

The Detroit Free Press isn't either. (Same company). My local rag isn't either(small company, probably gets more hits).

My guess is that they want us PO'ED all the time so we post it. Then we go back and see it again next week, and the following, etc.

More read their site, etc.

Perhaps. But it's still awful expensive and time consuming to go to the mat with these people considering the fact that it'd have to go all the way to the supreme court no matter which side wins or loses in the lower courts.

But it is an important issue. For it is an issue about the freedom and disemination of information in this country. When people are not permitted to link to information or when the information disappears, the history and collective memory of our country is endangered. Of course it will go to the Supreme Court. and it will take millions. But it needs to. The Internet has changed the rules and we need to shape the change.

I'm guessing that antiwar.com doesn't want their s**t posted on FR because many of us take it and use it for purposes of humor elsewhere, frequently on other mind-numbed robot-like knee-jerk liberal sites!

If it wasn't posted here, we wouldn't know about it (presumably).

No, it's because Raimondo had a hissy fit here after one of the antiwar.com writers pleaded guilty to terrorism charges and was sent to prison for a couple of decades (one of the "paintball" guys in Virginia).

His exit thread is kind of amusing, if I can find it.

Didn't catch that. You mean one of the boys "down the street" who went to stir over their terrorist training was an antiwar.com writer?

And here I thought most of those guys were just engineers and taxicab drivers.

My eldest saw the federales (and 35,000 other kinds of cops) take one of 'em down on a Sunday afternoon. Shut the neighborhood down to do it.

AlQaida and it's buddies failed to notice that Iraqi defectors and Kurdish refugees had moved into that neighborhood in large numbers.
