Remember Your Fair Use Laws

The Las Vegas Sun is reporting that Conservative News "linking" websites are being sued over copyright infringement.

Just a MAJOR reminder to all bloggers and people out there, make sure that you ONLY excerpt, link, and give credit where it is truly due.

Full Story Here.


  1. That's fine advice, but it should also be remembered that you can still be sued, because sometimes the lawsuit is used to intimidate people to settle out of court--even if what you are doing *is* Fair Use! The hope is that you wouldn't be able to challenge the newspaper.

  2. Absolutely Alphy. The first thing any student learns in any law course is that anyone can be sued for anything at any time.

    I have since taken your advice to generate a legal disclaimer.
