I have just been looking through the board and seeing quite a bit of copyrighted material posted on this board. Please do not copy and paste entire articles into this forum. I am personally liable for this. This is not something I take lightly as I have had a letter from an attorney once before over this.

You may source articles and you may quote articles. Copyright laws allow people to use articles for critiques and reviews. I have seen Linda's posts and she uses copyright material appropriately. If you are going to quote an entire article please use a link instead. Do not copy and paste the whole article, only small sections that you are critiquing or adding comments to.

If you have any confusion email me.

Thank you.

By the Article of Fair Use, you are allowed to quote 20% of an article. Link to the rest.
