The Federal Court of Canada has issued a ruling on the difference between copyright and posting information online in a lawsuit brought about by the National Post.

The court added that the small sample amount posted on the website, Free Dominion was not a large part of the work and therefore did not constitute copying and therefore there was no infringement.

The plaintiff the National Post a large corporate news site which also runs a newspaper, filed a lawsuit against the defendants, called the Free Dominion website over three pieces which consisted of 2 articles, and a link to a photograph. The National Post claimed they were infringed upon by excerpts of the article and linking to a photo.

The Canadian court decided that simply linking to a website or a photo does not constitute copyright infringement and dealt fairly with case in this manner. In fact the proper etiquette in website reporting is to include a link back to the site to give them credit for the photo or the excerpt.

hi5.gif Very cool! Everyone has been real good about staying under 50% of the article. Mainly I just take a few key passages anymore, that's all that's necessary.
We have no adverts either, makes it difficult to say we earned anything from anyone's stuff. Good find.

Or even better try and not post msm articles, the less we post & read their drivel the more irrelevant they will become. Although its always good form, to watch the watchers, the forth estate has become a scrap yard.

beercheer.gif I never post a full article either JR, just a couple paragraphs and leave it up to readers to decide if they want to read it. I think it's important.

Yeah we don't need any probs. That patent troll deal has run it's course though, I'm happy about that. The courts have shut them down time after time.
Yeah P, we at least have to post the occasional MSM if nothing else to keep up with the way they want to program the sheepsies.

I think most online media outlets saw this coming. That's why "Read more at:" and the page link is automatically added when you copy something on the page.
