The following is from Reuters. (I can’t find it anywhere on the net.)
Moderator’s Notes: This is copyrighted material. From the Reuter’s website:
Do not post copyrighted work on the SDMB. The registration agreement is very explicit on this subject. As a publisher, you can imagine the Chicago Reader (owner of this message board), is a very strong advocate of copyright laws. Small portions of an article are okay. Links are great. In fact, here’s one to the article I’ve removed (wasn’t too hard to find either, only took me about 3 minutes): http://www.reuters.com/news_article.jhtml?type=humannews&StoryID=375368#
That’s cool. I appreciate the assurances, but I’m more comfortable with it this way. If you want to post Reuter’s stories in the future, I (and the CR legal staff) would prefer links instead of full documents. Just a consistency and clarity thing. Plus, I won’t get a dozen e-mails telling of someone violating our copyright clause.
