Copyright issues

If we quote an article from a newspaper or journal, we should not only link to its source, but only quote a few lines as an excerpt ("Fair Use") and the link to the full article/story. Let's all try and follow the rule. Thanks!

Also, as we all know, we should link to the source for any photos we post, unless of course we took the photos ourselves.

Folks, please redouble our efforts to follow these rules; it is very important for our forum. I know everyone here is extremely good about it, but let's be vigilant that we do not copy whole articles. Thank you!!!

From Jan, the owner of this site. This is pretty much what we are doing, but let's try and stick to it closely, please:

Quote:
The best way to go forum-wide is to ask people not to copy whole articles into the forums, but use the following template

Title of the Article
One paragraph of text, being a summary or the first paragraph. The length of that paragraph could be something like this: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse laoreet, erat eu porttitor adipiscing, nunc ipsum laoreet purus, eu commodo ligula massa id mauris. Nulla blandit eleifend luctus. Curabitur mollis eros eu odio vulputate et vehicula felis pharetra. Ut congue fringilla ornare. Integer in euismod purus. Sed vehicula felis non libero accumsan consectetur. Aenean sit amet nulla leo. Maecenas ac risus vitae ligula fermentum malesuada eget non nunc. Praesent sodales, mauris a viverra porttitor, massa leo rutrum eros, sit amet congue lorem mauris ac est.
