    I've noticed the growing habit of posting whole articles on various forums.

    Please do not post copyrighted or trademarked material without first obtaining the express permission to do so by the copyright or trademark holder.

    Post only a summary (or key paragraph) and a link to the article instead. It is acceptable to quote other people's work so long as you credit them by name, include the title of the work, and do not repost the entire article.

    I found that I had resorted to posting a full article several times when it was off of CNN news as they do not give individual URL's for their stories. When I read your post, I tried to think of a way around this. I think what would work would be if I copied it to myself on a Word file and then posted as you ask above. Then also inform any readers that they may contact me for the full article via email. That should be OK...

    Copywrited materials are just that, copywrited. When we find an interesting article on the WWW, be it on CNN, the article usually have an option icon for "printer friendly" or "print" options. This command usually compresses the article, withouth all the other stuff. We can, and should, provide that ULR (or link) when we quote an eye cathing paragraph from the whole article. I think this is what the Webmaster was referring to (give credit where credit is due). [​IMG]

    Bumping this to to the top because we've had some questions about edits of super long articles.

    Thanks!

    According to internet fair-use law, you can post up to 25% of a copyrighted article. You must post a link to the article. You should also mention the title, author and source. For example---

    Most Baptists are Fine Folks

    by Jane Jones, MSNBC News

    &lt;Excerpt from article&gt;

    Post link to MSNBC website under the excerpt.



    That's all there is to it, and you'll be completely legal. You'll also save BaptistBoard a lot of bandwidth and possible legal problems.

    Some people, who I suspect were admonished in the past, now post only the url. It would be far better for the discussion if they would also post a summary or the opening paragraph and their own take on why it's interesting, imnsho.

    If one quotes someone else's information it should be short, to the point, and related to the discussion.

    BTW: I might read one out of twenty posted articles (or, links to articles). I have found that the ones that I have read: have not been related to the discussion; have been misrepresented as intending a different view than the article itself actually represented; and was merely used as fodder.

    This may be the wrong place to post this: Why are we advertising www.josephsmith.com at the bottom of our pages today?

    What is the criteria for advertising the occult?

    The ads are provided by Google based on the interests of the site's members (which obviously is broadly defined.)

    If a questionable ad pops up, please send the URL to a moderator so the Webmaster can be notified.

    Broadly defined: ecumenical profiteering.

    We are in effect bidding Joseph Smith Jr. and his millions of followers: "God speed".
    The Bible says we ought not to be doing that:

    II John 7-11.

    God has the copyright--He said to preach it.

    Selah,

    Nah, don't worry about it so much. Its more like getting on a bus to go to a neighborhood for a bible study or evangelistic meeting and the bus also has an ad for beer tacked on it somewhere. . .

    not that relevant.

    Hello Paul,

    I don't know if you realize it or not, but you are saying that a BB policy established by the BB Webmaster is
    Like it or not it is the official policy of the BB and as welcomed guests to this forum we all must abide by the Webmaster's policies. Therefore, the requirement for us not to post copyrighted material is extremely relevant.

    Bible-boy,
    I believe he was referring to the post about ads for Mormonism popping up from time to time.
