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.

Have you responded in kind -- telling these bozoes that they are not to make any use of anything they see on FR?

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....

Hmmm... don't think I heard back from their CEO. But, what the heck, if they don't want their material on FR so be it. I'll add them to the list.

Don't have the financial wherewithal to go to court again. Have simply complied with their wishes.

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.

Well, you could probably do that. I doubt they'd sue for that. If they do, oh well.

Wow, I am seriously surprised to see the Sun Sentinel on the list. I am also surprised that the Miami Herald is NOT on the list. Maybe they have more guts than I thought.

As I recall, we pretty much reached a consensus that BW's articles were fairly mediocre anyway.

Would ACLU or Rutherford or any other free speech group work with us?

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.
