  A Copyright Notice PLEASE READ  
  
Owing to our own research into this particular law, we'd like to make you aware now that if you post an entire article, regardless of if you source it properly and post the author's name, it will be removed.

**Copying and pasting whole articles breaches copyright law**

One source defines this law thus:

"Copyright Act defines that short quotations for the purpose of criticism, commentary or news reporting are considered “fair use”. Notice that the quote should involve only a small portion of the work, and it should not replicate the “heart” of the material."

Please stop copying articles verbatim from this point on. A short paragraph, what you think about it and a link to the source material is all that the law allows.

Thank you,
the admin team

  Interesting read  
  
I'm not sure what to think of this, but we'd probably better not break the law:

""Copyright Act defines that short quotations for the purpose of criticism, commentary or news reporting are considered “fair use”. Notice that the quote should involve only a small portion of the work, and it should not replicate the “heart” of the material."

"Please stop copying articles verbatim from this point on. A short paragraph, what you think about it and a link to the source material is all that the law allows."

You just hit on what could make us a mint -- we'll start a news site called "Misinformed Fringe News." We'll just make crap up, just like the right does. Here's our first story budget:

* Obama's plan to legalize pedophilia
* An insider tells all about the Clintons' secret Satanic rituals!
* UFO seen landing behind White House -- Obama hosts "beer summit" with E.T.
* The world is run by reptilian humanoids from outer space

Oh wait -- that last one's already been used ...

mainstream news sources are all misinformed and bs unless they agree with your crack pot point of view, we all know this.

no need to keep pointing it out.

  For 3 years  
  
The left has had control of the house & senate. Did they once make a budget ? NOPE - SPEND SPEND SPEND. when they got in trouble they point to the right and say it is their fault.

Shirker - you are obviously on a different planet!
