IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Please Read
« on: September 03, 2011, 04:30:05 pm »
To All Members:

In the last few months, numerous posts here have violated U.S. Copyright Laws.  They 've been posted mainly in The World Today thread but in other threads as well. 

It is illegal to C&P complete columns/articles from other sources and post them here.  By law you are limited to copying two to four paragraphs from an article/column and must then identify the source in your post and add a link to the story/article at its original source. For articles that are very long you can probably add another paragraph or two. Or you can just simply post the link to the story without C&P any of the article here. 

Please follow the legal practice as I've been already sent a 'cease and desist' warning about copyright infringements which threatened a lawsuit if violations of the law continue here.

From this point on, any and all posts that violate these standards will not be modified but will be deleted.  In the future, members who continuously disregard copyright laws will be placed on  'moderation' status.


Thank you.

Andy
