DO NOT POST COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL

If you wish to refer to copyrighted source material, please post a DESCRIPTION of what the copyrighted material states.

Please do not post actual copyrighted material.

An asshat has recently purchased the right to sue persons and websites that display copyrighted material.
See http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/201...g-for-dollars/

None of us can afford this.

Your cooperation is appreciated.

  2. List the FULL URL to the article quoted. The domain name / main website address alone is not acceptable, the URL must lead to the article directly.

So this means that we can post 'our' version of the story and or
paraphrase with no consequences? The leftards are going broke
so they have to resort to suing people, that just means now no one
will read it let alone pay for it.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyrig...d_fair_dealing

But remember, "fair use" is a DEFENSE.

Fair use is not a bar such that would necessarily result in sanctions against a party who might file a meritless suit alleging copyright violation.

Unless you like being sued, and all the shit that comes with that, I sincerely hope those posting here will err on the side of caution until such time as the asshat in question gets his come-uppance.

They passed out tinfoil helmets there also. So what?

I'll abide by this paranoid BS simply because you asked. Perhaps however Jen would better protect herself by simply pulling the plug.

How about this jackass goes out and gets an actual job? Do something productive for society, make a difference, accomplish something, produce a product, employ people, pay taxes, contribute?

Asshat? I say A$$hole.

I finally read this post . That peckerwood needs his ass kicked . What a spineless worm , He thinks he so damn smart by buying up copyrights of other people's work simply to sue people . I would like to roll up and shove the Las Vegas tribune up his ass then light it on fire .
