IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ - Policy regarding news articles

Post by Zebedee » Wed Nov 30, 2005 9:00 am

Folks,

Effective immediately please observe the following policy regarding posting news articles to the forums.

To avoid copyright issues, please do not copy and paste entire news articles into a forum post. This is almost certainly a breach of copyright.

If you want to draw other forum members' attention to something you have seen in the media then please post the article's title, no more than a sentence or two just to give people an idea what the article is about, and then a link to the site where the full article is published.

This follows the successful format that Google uses in their Google News website.

To avoid the potential for copyright problems in the future, postings that are seen by an admin or moderator that they consider to have too much of an article reproduced will be either shortened or deleted.


Regards,
Doug Bell (Zebedee) VK6DB
