It's OK to post bits from articles from other sites. How else does a forum facilitate decent discussion? Just post less than 50% of what you find and site all sources.

 

Original postings and thoughts are welcome at all times.

A lot of websites use copy pasta to get the word rolling around on the internet. Some people are quite good at putting together bits and pieces from all around to form a coherent thread.

Only if you copy in black and white. Try a little color and see what happens...

All you're really doing is making hash out of other peoples hard work. It's tantamount to plagiarism!

During the past decade, the Internet has become an important news source for most Americans. According to a study conducted by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, as of January 2010, nearly 61 percent of Americans got at least some of their news online in a typical day. This increased reliance on the Internet as a source of news has coincided with declining profits in the traditional media and the shuttering of newsrooms in communities across the country. Some commentators look at this confluence of events and assert that, in this case, correlation equals causation — the Internet is harming the news business.

 

One explanation for the decline of the traditional media that some, including News Corporation owner Rupert Murdoch and Associated Press Chairman Dean Singleton, have seized upon is the rise of the news aggregator. According to this theory, news aggregators from Google News to The Huffington Post are free-riding, reselling and profiting from the factual information gathered by traditional media organizations at great cost. Rupert Murdoch has gone so far as to call Google’s aggregation and display of newspaper headlines and ledes “theft.” As the traditional media are quick to point out, the legality of a business model built around the monetization of third-party content isn’t merely an academic question — it’s big business. Revenues generated from online advertising totaled $23.4 billion in 2008 alone.

 

Best practices

 

If you are the creator of a news aggregation website, what should you do to protect yourself against lawsuits? Short of licensing all of the content you use, there are certain best practices that you can adopt that are likely to reduce your legal risk.

 

1. Reproduce only those portions of the headline or article that are necessary to make your point or to identify the story. Do not reproduce the story in its entirety.

 

2. Try not to use all, or even the majority, of articles available from a single source. Limit yourself to those articles that are directly relevant to your audience.

 

3. Prominently identify the source of the article.

 

4. Whenever possible, link to the original source of the article.

 

5. When possible, provide context or commentary for the material you use.
