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:
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:

Also, do not post images from Corbis or Getty.

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.
Thanks, Jim. I was afraid it got lost. The list is getting too long. Too bad.
Ah well, such is the way the world probably has to go.
Any chance that you could place a link to a current list of these sites on the Post Article page?
The industry mouthpieces don’t like the serf class to talkback to them, point out errors, falicies, etc.
There is at least one columnist who’s own publisher’s website has a talkback section and that ticked him off. He responed in a column by saying something like “I don’t care what you think...”.
barbed wire; electrified fences; guard towers; attack dogs; gas chambers; crematoriums; the usual.
Great idea on the printer friendly .... I shall try to remember that in the future....
Those of us stuck on 56K dialup lines gotta stand up for ourselves :)
Sorry you are stuck with dial up, but just the same I want to read the article and not have to deal with ads, so it is a good idea.....
I sometimes wrte articles at Associated Content. Do you meant to tell me that I have to excerpt my own article?
How absurd is that?
These publishers are idiots who are damaging their own business for anrrow-minded ideological reasons.
But we knew that well before this letter.
Just a heads-up...I don’t see dw-world.de on the list, but it was blocked when I tried to post something.
Didn’t realize this had happened with Gannett.
The same thing just happened to me. Did you ever get a response? I found your post when I was searching to see if I had missed it having been added to the list.
I know of a couple more that I have seen noted while reading posts but are not on the list:
Forbes.com and Gary Larson cartoons.
* Jim, has this policy changed?
I tried to post a Gannett Publication today 03/30/2008 with the title and link, but was Blocked. [Burlington Free Press] .
before I post from here; is http://www.salem-news.com/ about to be added to the list or has it already?
I don’t recall any complaints from Salem News, but to be on the safe side, you can always post it as an excerpt.
