Friendly Reminder: When posting articles - please REMEMBER the 50% rule. (Enforcing Bans on Copyright Violations)
In case some of you don't know, or forgot, we have a 50% rule for posting news and articles. Copying and pasting anything over 50% is considered a copyright violation.

Also, ALWAYS cite/link the source.

And, posting lyrics is forbidden.

Be careful, you guys!

You do not want your thread deleted or red karma for violating this very simple rule, do you?

Edit from phenn:

***also be careful when making CRV reports - ive noticed some are reporting as 100% or even over 50% and the article happens to be in compliance. be accurate in your reporting as the poster gets penalized for said violation of posting rules -


we get that sometimes the proxy youre using strips the forum of images and or font color - so some of you may not "see" the the "reminder" to the left of the posting box. so you have to remember our posting policies. - You all have been here long enough to know our posting policies - and FTR when you post, theres a HUGE RED FONT REMINDER to the left of the post box - cmon dont pretend you dont see it. its as subtle as a brick thru a window ffs - we will be enforcing bans for copyright violations and the -3 point negative red karma. theres no excuse folks

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18835401


if it is genuinely used for education purposes, it is always a good idea to post the statute:

This is copyrighted information presented under the Fair Use Doctrine of the United States Copyright Act (section 107 of title 17) which states: 'the fair use of a copyrighted work...for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.' In practice the courts have decided that anything which does not financially harm the copyright holder is fair use.

even if you are using copyrighted material for fair use, you still have cite/link the source.

This is all wrong.
The 'fair use' clause in copyright law is the allowance for small bits of articles or books (other) used for an express purpose.
You are writing about an article and say, "The AP phrased it like this." Just that part can be used.
If you have longer areas copied there must be an express purpose. If you are giving an example of Joyce's chain of consciousness writing it might be excused to copy and entire page.
The Internet has messed this all up. Soon things will, as they should, become much stricter, just like print media.

Some Internet sites say that just part of an article can be copied but you must give a written reason. This skirts and ignores the real reason for the fair use clause exclusion.

What you can do is copy a small section out with a comment that relates to that section and then give the link.

Most articles only have two or three sentences of useful information anyways.

Because you are taking the intellectual property of another. However, you make copy small amounts FOR A SPECIFIC PURPOSE and cite the source and that is an exception called the fair use clause. Just limiting the amount to 50% is not enough. In time the Internet must catch up to this.
