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 wasn't aware that the Canada Free Press had been added to the "excerpt only" list. When did this happen....AND....can we (please) FINALLY get another (updated, FULL) posting of all the current "excerpt only" publications. I/others cannot keep up with the ones being added on what seems to be a daily basis. :-)

On what theory, they are claiming copyright to the URL itself?

Ok, I don't get it. If you're giving the proper acknowledgement to the site and publisher, etc, what have they to loose from people reading their articles on FR? You'd think if nothing else it would be free advertisement that might bring more people to their websites to read other articles.

WOW! Once any news media publishes anything - it's out there. I suppose, if someone electronically copies their Internet printed copy, they might have a complaint. But if one were to copy/paste to some other software, like MSWord (for example) their link would be broken.

I guess I'm very late getting into this discussion, and I "know" I'm not a good spokesmen. But even dummies have feelings.

Jim, would it be possible to put a link to this list in a prominent place, like at the top of the "Posting new thread" screen? And preferably a straightforward up-to-date list, rather than a long thread with new additions to the list buried in it. As far as I can tell, there's no way to find this list, unless you remember part of the the thread title (and for all I know, this isn't the most recent official thread on the topic), or by e-mailing Admin Moderator.

I agree.

I gave the suggestion to the cool mod that it would be good to have it somewhere we could remember where to find it... that's where I suggested. I'm sure there are better ideas, but that one didn't require a forum software change.

It didn't seem to be very hard to add "Loose lips sink ships" to the posting screens after 9/11, so I doubt it would be hard to add a link labelled "Restricted sources list" under the "Source" box on the article posting page. The trouble is that newer posters have no idea such a list exists, much less where to find it. And even us oldies have a heck of a time finding it.

Here's what FURL says about copyright....they seem to have an altogether different view of things...

http://www.furl.net/faq.jsp#copy
http://www.furl.net/faq.jsp#copy

"# Isn't Furl a huge copyright violation?

A common misperception of Furl is that it allows people to share copyrighted work. Fortunately for everyone, that is not the case. When you save an item with Furl, you save a copy of the document, but that copy is only visible to you. When other users view an item in your public archive, they are directed to the publishers site. If that site requires membership, they must sign up to see the content.

Contrary to these concerns, we believe that Furl is a boon to publishers because it lets people share the interesting and useful information that they find online. This means that any publisher/journalist who produces good work, regardless of their strength in distribution, can be found by thousands of people who otherwise would have never ventured to the site. We know, personally, that we have read many wonderful articles that we never would have seen had it not been for Furl. If you have any concerns with regards to this issue, please contact us. "

I have the distinct feeling that your Free Republic is doing the job you intended it to do. When something is successful, the first thing that happens is to squelch information; i.e., my First Amendment rights. Is that what all this is about?

I thought that once something was published for common consumption, it was no longer private. I don’t want you getting sued, but this makes me angry. However I’ll do what you say.

I just tried to post an article that was kind of funny about a russian astrologer suing NASA Link: http://www.mosnews.com/news/2005/09/14/marinabay.shtml

But it gave me an error that we are not allowed to post articles from mosnews.com, what gives, they aren't listed on the baned list.

Thanks for your help.

I don't know weather to congratulate you or feel chilled by the gathering storm.

You tireless efforts are apparently changing the culture of news distribution in the US.

I can only hope that as a result of your inspiration our society will be better off because of the electronic, grass roots, rebellion genre you pioneered 10 years ago.

Good luck to us all.

Just a learning newbie, where is a freeper 101 guide to be found? And a jargon dictionary for that matter.

This is a lot like when GM first started installing CB's in stock radios; suddenly everyone was a trucker, and just a few were tolerant of the hoi polloi.

Jim,

I always have to spend a lot of time hunting around for the list of periodicals who do not want their full or excerpted articles copied on to FR. Could you link this from the home page, that way everyone could find it readily, and this will probably save you a lot of aggrevation in the end as well too. I would suggest you have a link to posting guidelines right on the home page.

Thanks

Re Gannet (and, I guess, all restrictions, in general re Fair Use), it just seems this runs so opposite to the Fair Use doctrine of the U.S. copyright statute.

The fair use doctrine allows short quotes and short excerpts of copyrighted works. I assume you abide by this to just keep them off your backs, but how is it that they get this free pass that runs totally counter to the Fair Use Doctrine?

I am sure you have answered this before, and forgive me if so, but it really bugs me that Gannet is acting like the Fair Use Doctrine does not exist.

You're (FreeRebublic.com is) really doing the job if so many are scared about being referenced here. It proves the "MSM" know they are irrelevant. If they were relevant they'd welcome discussion and comments about (read that as political positions) of their articles.

Jim, if there are changes, additional publications added, do you add them to the HTML at the beginning?

I was sent a few things to post at the single thread & do NOT see the publication at the initial listing but want to make sure the additions might not have additional information.

I have this thread on my profile page for others to refer to also.

thanks!
