It has come to my attention that copying and pasting articles from another website is copyright infringement. This even includes articles that do not have a copyright statement.

The law does allow for a summary of the article with a statement of or link to the source. It is also common practice in the industry to copy a sentence or two then link to the source, like what is done in google alerts.

I'm asking for everyone's cooperation starting today to either summarize and source the article, or to post a link when sharing news items. Please remember that if the page you link hosts photos (of anyone) that are restricted by our Paparazzi-free policy, you may not post the link.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

So we are not allowed to post/quote the whole article even if we link to the source? Just double checking to make sure I understand.....

You understand correctly, ODD. Although many think that providing the link or crediting the source is the proper way to honor a copyright (me included until recently) when copying and pasting an article, the law is clear that it doesn't.

Ok then, thank you susan! One more question, would the site get in trouble for all the previous articles posted/quoted?

It is not likely, but it is possible.

OK... I need some help here as I'm feeling abit sick about what I just read. FoxNews has an article stating that Johnny and Vanessa are 'on the rocks'. Has anyone heard this yet? I sat there going ..No,no,no,no,no,no and then came directly here. I would think that if (God forbid!!!!)it were true, it would make headlines right away. What do you all think???

There's another thread on this, Nan - but what I think is that with the Republican Primaries/Caucuses going on, yuo'd think Fox had better things to speculate about.

I seem to remember rumours a year or so ago that Brad was going back to Jennifer, and of course, the celebration of Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins as Hollywoods most enduring and fairytale couple some 6 months after they had split up. I'd take any speculation, good or bad, about private lives of celebs. with a very large pinch of salt (maybe even a "punch" of salt - darn, can't find a Donnie Brasco smiley!) until anything is confirmed by them or their publicists.

IS this copyright law for the U.S.A. only or the rest of the world as well?
