    WHich is why it is always important to source quotes, and not claim something as your own.

    I think its ridiculous in that once their newpaper or online posting are sent out or made and they have a registration (even if its free) to see the article, what? I am in cali. I am going to order a Denver newspaper to read the whole story or take the time to register to see one whole article? And if I read it online they lose how? By me not going to their site and they don’t garner a ‘click’ to satisfy their ad revenue calcs? I just won’t go there at all, they get the click when someone originally sees the article then copies it for posting. IF they had a totally free or non reg. required view, yes I would go and see the whole article, so in the end, the registration thing imho is a detriment.

    I realize that print is struggling but this isn’t the answer.

    was it strictly a source issue? I thought it read as a posting issue period(?)

    I guess the right will have to stop posting. Unless all those bullet points they memorized aren't copyrighted.

    I doubt that you - as an individual (because I am capable of recognizing individuals) could remember your name without prompting. Hack.
