A Note About Posting News Articles From Other Sources
« on: April 24, 2012, 12:19:54 AM »

To avoid any potential copyright problems, the preferred method of posting articles is to post a 'brief summary of the article, including the title' and a link to it's origin.

Example:

20 Firefighters Hurt in Blaze

"Two residents and more than 20 firefighters were injured when a four-alarm blaze ripped through four Bronx buildings yesterday."

We must ask our membership to follow this guideline. Any unauthorized reproduction (even credited) can be grounds for legal action. And we don't need that ;)

Thanks!!!!

Mike.....so what you are asking is to just post the link w/explanation rather then pasting the entire story in print ?

If I am monitoring Boston or Chicago on radioreference and either dept wacks the deuce BFD or give me a 2-11 CFD how do I post the info. Do you required the post site or can I post verbally, because this is info sent over public airways. And I tell people to Google/Yahoo a site and do a search, is this permissable?

If this violates the protocal I am sorry. I am 63 years old, I am NOT computer savvy. I worked with USAF in SEA, flew/worked with the 20 TASS. Dennis Leary did a documentary on Detroit, focusing on E-50 Web site I hope Dennis Leary.com guess not. OK we are not as dumb as me, hit his site and check out the Detroit documentary. I guess I am too fucking stupid to do sites

Griz-  This is only about news articles, buddy! Like if you saw something at the Chicago Tribune website.
