Posting of News Articles
The same guidelines are applicable to the posting of text -- which, like images, are always the work of others' minds and in the case of columnists and journalists, their 'bread and butter.' For this reason, I've specifically requested
Do NOT post entire articles from other websites or publications; selective quoting is permitted but it is preferable to link to the web address of your source.For those who read my blog (or other blogs), you'll probably notice a technique of posting the leading paragraph or summary of an article and then providing a link to the rest of the article on the original website with the caption "Read More" -- this would be my personal preference, given the manner in which it shows consideration for (and recognition of) the author by directing the reader to the whole of his or her work.
Be mindful that in quoting, cite a portion of the article and link to the source. Posting 90% of the article, even if citing the source is still an infringement.
I've seen this a few times lately while surfing the threads by various contributors, so I want to reiterate this point.
