    Well I took care of the few that I had posted. This is one time when having only a few hundred posts came in handy....

    Yeah, horrible indeed. At least L&M were kind enough to let you know. I hope things go well for them. So much for freedom of information and the right to free speech! I know for a fact I haven't posted any reviews (other than my own) so I reckon I should be ok, but let me know if otherwise. As I said to Lou earlier, if somebody wanted to link to or comment on a review I wrote, I'd be flattered!

    Hope the moving goes well too Nancy! Good luck.

    Hopefully, I've gotten all of mine!

    It might be helpful if anyone sees one somewhere to pm the poster as to where it is so they can go delete it.

    If I can be of help, too, please let me know.

    Hopefully I got all mine too. Most of mine were translations from last summers tour overseas.

    Yes, if anyone notices I missed an article, please let me know.

    CAUTIONARY NOTE:

    Hey everyone I just want to caution folks to please refrain from posting any specific information about these lawsuits or parties involved until I talk to our board administrator. Because of the legal implications involved here, Id say we should play it safe and limit our discussions to how to go about deleting any potentially damaging info.

    This is a great community and I know we all want to keep it that way. I know this post may seem reactionary, but that's because it is. We will get this all sorted out soon, I', sure. Thanks everyone for your understanding, help, and cooperation.

    When I post links I don't actually quote the articles. But I have posted photos from other sites on occasion. Unless there is a specific copyright issue with photos I would think those would be OK.

    Wow! That is terible news. I hope this is helpful.

    Written permission from the person holding the copyright is often required to reproduce copyrighted material.

    Without a note or letter--or an e-mail, from the owner of a copyright; I wouldn't advise anyone to run anything on a website that might be someone else's copyrighted material--, including any videographic or photographic items.
    This is to stay clear of anything someone might claim was their own.

    You can run your own personally written reviews (writtten by you), personally taken photos (photos taken by you),--whatever--because you are the person with the copyright to your own original created works. (That is, unless you transfer or sell your own right to your own original created works to somebody else, officially).
    (For example, if someone else took a picture, they are who own the copyright to the photographic image, unless they sell or transfer their copyright to someone else; a company, for example. In this same example, after a transfer of copyright from an original photographer to a company, the company would subsequently own the copyright to reproducting copies of the photographic image instead of the photographer who took the picture originally).
    Copyright is approximately the right to copy, reproduce, duplicate or distribute copies of something.

    There are any real-life exceptions to the written permission guideline--sometimes this would include small excerpts or phrases credited to the copyright owner; which may be related to another person's original work; but are not, in addition, an integral (core-level) re-use of the other person's work.
    There are broader guidelines for articles written by and for academia, for instance--but there's no real certainty of a judge's decision in any case.

    If there's some real question of any copyright violation, first immediately offer to remove and rescind anything that could cause anyone any harm of any kind.


    The U.S. Copyright Office has a website with general information topics to browse through at www.copyright.gov, but I don't know what it says about the online realm. You can order free government circulars about copyrights.
