    the "Latoc board has instituted strict 7day bans for users; using copyrighted material after being contactedon the phone andthreatened by "AP" ;seems "fair use" is a: title, 5-10%ofthearticle and paraphrased comments or summary and a linkto the article. You'd think they wouldn't want their articles misquoted???[beat][beat]


    I alway thought posting their article in its entirety and a link was perfectly alright, seems AP doesn't think so; and with their llifeboats on fire and their chinese life vests made
    of open cell foam the papers are grabbing at burning cocktail straws. Hanging from fromthe fantail.

    more on the Ap thing seems its back firing, AP stuff is being completely banned from alot of boards and blogs nobody' is gonna know they existed soon...

    this will change the look and feel of boards and blogs; and I'm due for a change in my daily routine anyway...
