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?

That definitely should be done.

You can always save the article on your computer instead of bookmarking.

I wonder: What if it's posted at another bulletin board. Can we link to the thread on that board?

Well, what would happen if we linked to a liberal forum that had the article in question posted in its entirety? That would be amusing.

I'm thinking that's what we need to do. :-)

Maybe we should sign in to some of those fora to post stuff, then bring it to the attention of the publications involved.

In the mantime, though, would it be permissible to say, "Hey. look what's on leftwing.com"?

Funny, another website where I'm a member has people posting messages all the time that contain the entire article from many of the sites that are whining about Free Republic.

So far, there has not been any complaints from either paper and people continue to post the full articles.

Care to post what site that is?

What happens if we link to the thread there?

My concern, as it has been for a long time, is that we don't have complete individual articles to reference once they disappear from their web site.

Print a copy and find a place to archive it and then yoou refer to the archive, even if it's only on your own computer (scanned.)

I can understand why any of these pubs would not want the ENTIRE article copied here - they want their website visited for $$$ reasons.

But to prohibit us from quoting any part of an article says to me that they want to be in the catbird seat when it comes to criticizing the rest of the world, but do not want their own lies, errors or bias to be exposed by us.

I don't know how they can stop us from quoting them or linking to them. The FAir Use provision premits use of a certain amount of content for purposes of comment, and I think thelaw trumps these guys' petty desire to control what is said about them.

Please do not post full text or even excerpts from the following Gannett Web sites:

GANNETT NEWSPAPERS ON THE WEB:

Delaware

The News Journal, Wilmington

Tonight I tried posting a link to a News Journal article from two weeks ago (about NASCAR, just to see FReepers' responses), using the source field for the link, and it rejected the post. Has Gannett's copyright edict been updated further since 5/6/04? Oh, and what are "third-party content providers"?

It's good to look in here once in a while to see the updated lists.

I can't believe Gannett and their big long list of no-nos.

I'm glad that that particular dinosaur of the media is having hard times financially, and is having to close down many of its subsidiaries.

They sold the rights to run the website to someone else who will adminsiter it, archive it, and post the content. Essentially, they outsourced it. This causes them two problems. First, the group that bought the rights to publish the content paid for the right to put it on the internet, so no one else can do that unless they pay for the right. If Gannett allows others to post the content for free, why should the contractor pay them?

Second, the third party has a legitimate complaint that it is absorbing all the costs to put Gannett content on the internet and their ability to profit from advertising is harmed by cutting and pasting the articles to another site.

They probably also hate Free Republic, which means we are doing something right. Gannett papers tend towards bird cage liners anyway.

Too bad. Finney puts out a great column.

So, no linking of anything Gannett, anywhere in the post, including this (the text of the post) field?

Those poor publishers. First, no one wanted to buy their newspapers, now no one wants to visit their crummy little sites.

If only they would publish something truthful, and in the public interest, maybe people would trust them again and buy papers.

One thing I’d love to see here is a screen which allows us to test root domain names, to see whether we can post from them or not. The fastest workaround is clunky (pretend to start a topic, and just paste in the desired URL in all fields, then “preview”) and the software already prevents posting from blocked sites. A link to the screen could be included on every page? Is something like that feasible?

These publishers have asked us not to allow any material at all to be posted to FR:

Does this means no title or link?

Can one talk about an article that might come from one of these in our own words and a foot note or where one might read more with out a link?

I might not even use any of those places also if this is not a thread, but in general conversation many times to save time I just do a title and link in a post.

That is going to be hard for the mods to monitor all of this and many times poster are not thinking about it.

We always have been lucky with the threads for they alert us that it is not accepted.

Maybe in the area where you list-

SCOTUS | ProLife | Terrorism | WOT | Korea | PreWarDocs | Aliens | BangList | Taxes | Homosexual Agenda | Corruption | Congress | Bush | Elections | Rally | WalterReed | TalkRadio | CitizensReportonIraq (.pdf file) | Gathering of Eagles | Donate to FR

you could also list “copyright list.” for connivance.

Thank you

I really appreciate FR

I think FR is being singled out. I see articles from these places posted in Yahoo groups and other websites all the time. None of them (to my knowledge) has ever been threatened in this way.

I think it is too. I see full page articles posted all the time at FireSociety but FireSociety seems to be a Ron Paul supporter hangout. I'm a Fred supporter and when I post opinions or unflattering articles about Ron Paul they start screaming about slander, libel, etc. Copyright infringement never seems to be an issue over there.

If it is not welcome, it it like posting DU articles or dailyKos?

FR is a for profit corporation. The fact it does not charge fees or take advertising is meaningless. A “donation” is only a voluntary fee.

In other words, FR does not meet the statutory requirements for fair use. Jim could argue that by adding commentary, the nature of the product has been transformed, but that would probably be a long shot.

I checked the do not post list before posting an article from the New York Sun. I did not find it but when I went to post it I was informed it is an “excerpt only” site. Please check this. Thanks
