Help From Administrator or Mod Please
« on: July 03, 2016, 12:36:55 PM »
I have been banned from another forum for "copyright" infringement.

I posted the following on a forum and I guess that I don't know the "copyright" laws as well as I should?

http://i64.tinypic.com/2uhvo04.jpg

I opened the thread with: "I bet they outsell the 'Times' tomorrow for the front page alone!"

I also posted a link: http://nypost.com/2016/07/01/lynch-may-be-forced-to-charge-hillary-after-bills-shady-powwow/

This was my whole post before it was pulled:




The following was the message to me from the leftist mod:
Quote
Instead of copying-and-pasting articles, photos, or other material you find on the Internet, you should be posting links to those articles. Posting a snippet from the article and then the link is the appropriate way to post.

I have posted the same in a lot of other forums and have not been "chastised" for it?

I posted the picture and a link so .. what am I missing?

MC

P.S. I couldn't figure out what topic to post this under but I would sure like feedback from other members.

Different forums have different rules regarding copyright laws, posting links and pictures. It is customary for those rules to be posted somewhere on the site so members know what to do. Normally the text posted should not exceed 200 words. Then again you might have struck a nerve with the story, i.e. lib site.

Your tinyurl link leads to nothing of value, no picture and no text. This is the link to the front page, not the one you posted.

I'm sure the mods and admins will clarify the rules here.

Thanks tac.

What tiny url?

The link (as posted above) is/was: http://nypost.com/2016/07/01/lynch-may-be-forced-to-charge-hillary-after-bills-shady-powwow/

That was the front page at the time for the post.

At the time, it was only being reported as .. the next days cover.

As tac said also. 

I myself go by pretty much what quiller has posted a great many time.  Photo, jpg, png and other, I like look at the sit and see if they say it's a copyright violation to reproduce.  As this site does not make money off this board.  I don't see someone coming after someone on this site for a jpg or photo.  They can always ask for it to be taken down.   But the final word on the subject should come from Solar and Taxed.

Tac has it right. You didn't break copyright laws, though the forum appears to have turned lib on you, and we all know libs and rules are oil and water.
The NY Post would send you a thank you note for helping promote their paper, because it's the very thing you see when you look in the stand to buy a paper, so in essence, you're promoting their paper, something libs despise. :lol:
