RULES FOR POSTING ARTICLES

we went through this a few years back, but i guess it's time to revisit.

there was a situation with other forums where they'd post the whole article on their forums and they got in trouble with those sites.

so for the sake of not getting in trouble, if you're posting an article:

make it a teaser, two paragraphs and a link to the actual article so the article/writer can get a hit on their site and everything is ok

I'm not sure why people are so fickle but could you elaborate on why one gets in trouble even if posted whole article with the link? I can understand not linking source at all but with?

It's the 'Fair Use' principle. You're allowed to use portions of copyrighted material but you're not supposed to just copy an entire article, unless you have the permission of the author.

"The 1961 Report of the Register of Copyrights on the General Revision of the U.S. Copyright Law cites examples of activities that courts have regarded as fair use: “quotation of excerpts in a review or criticism for purposes of illustration or comment; quotation of short passages in a scholarly or technical work, for illustration or clarification of the author’s observations; use in a parody of some of the content of the work parodied; summary of an address or article, with brief quotations, in a news report; reproduction by a library of a portion of a work to replace part of a damaged copy; reproduction by a teacher or student of a small part of a work to illustrate a lesson; reproduction of a work in legislative or judicial proceedings or reports; incidental and fortuitous reproduction, in a newsreel or broadcast, of a work located in the scene
of an event being reported.”"

It's also a courtesy.

All Laker articles (teaser, etc.) should have at a minimum the required caveat

LAKERS SUCK

for veracity's sake. As a simple absolute truth and courtesy.

Fot the benefit of the children as honesty is the best policy.

Think of and for the sake of the children.
