    I put up a press release from the United Nations in its entirety. In the past a press release was never considered a copyright issue considering the purpose of the PR was to make it available to anyone on the planet.

    I just want to make sure that it's AOK to do so. If not, just pm me and I will precis the PR like I do copyrighted material.

    Thanks in advance.

    yours,

    As long as you include the link, i don't think there should be a problem given that it's a press release and intended for public consumption.
