    Many forums are now making this a "rule" that entire articles can't be posted and even that only very small sections can be posted.

    SBS used to have a rule about posting "whole" articles :right:

    I just post a link to the article :)

    Maybe they should make it a rule here, too :shock:

    At our site we most times post the entire story c/p. I find as some others that when you go into a thread and it is just a link every time, you don't click off site to read it. Most times I couldn't be bothered unless it is right there on the page. Also if too many are posted it gets picked up as spamming.

    That's always been a rule. Whenever I ran my board I always made sure the articles were clipped. Fair use allows you to use a portion of the article, not the whole thing, plus a link.

    I've been seeing a lot of posts with entire articles and some without links. I just wanted to give a warning because this guy seems to be on a mission.

    Har! Follow the link and check out that guy's photo. If "douchebag" isn't the first word that pops into your head, you're lying.

    It's high time we register DRC in China, or at least Norway. Copyrights? What copyrights?
