So what if we cut and paste but change up some of the words and sentences?

Then it's only plagiarism.

It is not the shithead profiled in the article that is the only danger. Wait until the VPC or SPLC goes after its so called hate site list, using this technique.

The speed that such info travels the cyberworld will mean that the originators of the "small potatotes" payer concept, like that jerks firm, will find the well gone dry overnight.

Site purges will eliminate much of the old items and postings.

I suggest that if possible, posters who are guilty of wholesale posting ought to remember and go back and edit the posts they put up. Let your conscience be your guide.

It looks like RightHaven LLC is going after gun folks as well. They have sued the owner of the "Armed Citizen" for copyright infringement forcing him to shut down his website.

Linky

"Righthaven" LLC shuts down gun blog Armed Citizen for 'fair use' article "infringement"

On Thursday, Clayton Cramer, a gun rights activist, announced that his blog, The Armed Citizen, was being sued by RightHaven LLC for copyright infringement. He decided the best course of action would be to close it down.

It COULD happen here on the Files.

Apparently RightHaven's CEO Steve Gibson is known as a real slimeball even by his fellow lawyers, which is really saying something. He is gaming copyright laws to make money.

they are currently only legally able to go after content from the media outlets listed in the previous link, everything else is fine.

THAT'S cool. Not only protect yourself but it becomes a defacto boycott to boot.
