  • Argh! People are so afraid of violating copyright. You were simply quoting facts. Which aren't copyrightable.

    The large publishing interests want you to think that any use of their material is somehow controlled by them; that copyright gives them that power. It doesn't. Don't concede the point to them!

    • You are probably right (IANAL and not knowledgable about copyright), but I conceded the point because I pretty much copied those points/facts straight from the article. I didn't want to paraprase the points/facts and be accused of adding my own bias. So re-typing those "snippets" from the article got me thinking about copyright - there were more "snippets" that I could have added, but I got to the point where I would have just been re-posting the whole article, and that got me to thinking about copyright.
    • Is it okay for me to quote you on this? Would you send me the contract so that I can review your comment?

      Please don't lawyer me for replying...! *whimper*
