    COPYRIGHTS AND FAIR USE LAW

    I have to remind people once again. Limit your OP's to 3 paragraphs of copied articles.

    Unless it's in the public domain like legal documents or the Bible or Shakespeare (these are examples) - they're Copyrighted.

    Also, you MUST have a proper link.

    From what I have learned as forum owners in the past that an excerpt shouldn't exceed 20% of the article and that it should from the beginning of the article.

    Here is what I normally do is this common format for posting an article,

    (Website name)

    Title of the Article (Should be bigger size letters or bolded)

    Date and Authors name

    Excerpt:

    The first few paragraphs from the BEGINNING of the article that doesn't exceed 20% of the article. (DO NOT pick up a paragraph from the middle to the end part of an article as lawsuits have been decided over such misuse of the article)

    Link

    =====

    Sometimes you have to ask permission from the source or author to post it.
    IPCC TAR Chapter 14 Page 773 Paragraph 14.2.2 Predictability in a Chaotic System

    In climate research and modelling, we should recognise that we are dealing with a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore that the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.

    Since the rules are so defined - who needs an umpire?

    I've been reminding for nine years.
    People ignore. People don't read the rules.
    Now there will be warnings given out.

    Still not getting it folks? Anyone who is unwilling to make an effort to post only 2 or 3 paragraphs, is at this point just not paying attention. Any fair use violation...your OP will be reduced to ONE paragraph. If this keeps up, real infractions and temp bans will be given.

    If we get sued, the forum will close. None of you will pay the legal bills and I'm not rich. That's the burden some of you continue to lay on my shoulders, not to mention the extra work. It's unconscionable that some of the long timers still ignore this rule.

    I find it amazing that people are still not taking fair use properly and seriously, there is a reason why the EXCERPT needs to be short (<20% or less of the article) for several reasons:

    1) drive traffic to the original source being quoted
    2) avoid intruding on/generating copyright theft claims
    3) fair use of the source material from the source itself that may depend on regular visitation flow to the original source that is dependent on advertisement and for authors be given respect for their work

    It is really easy to do what Trinnity wants shorter excerpts is less work too.

    I created a specific example on how I wanted an article to be properly posted in my past forums in full detail as I didn't want to get sued over it either it is worth doing it right and everybody is better for it.

    There's no reason to copy and paste. When I post I always write my own synopsis. Perhaps I'll add a short quote but that's about it. I provide links for people to follow. If you're going to research you need to click those links anyway.

    We've all probably come from other forums where we 'learned' how to post so after 20yrs I have to watch myself. If you can only post 3 paragraphs it's supposed to be the first 3 - and not taking them out of sequence - which omits some of the most important facts.

    If you add those facts listed in the article, in your own words - you cannot alter them to give any other meaning! I copy and paste my post on Notepad, sized down to 6" X 6" to post my threads and often save those 'Articles' to my Documents for future use.

    Through the years I've found that few people bother to go to the links and then make comments or ask questions that prove my claim. I also wish we had more room to post the Original Titles, which would eliminate double and triple posts.

    I understand @Trinnitys concern and always try my best to follow her rules. I'm just glad to be here.

    I just removed a copyrighted article, posted in full, with no link. If that blog post wasn't written by the OP, it's a copyright violation. It will not be returned until I sort it out.

    Folks, I am fed up with people ignoring copyright law. Fed up.
