  • Notice to readers about Denver Post copyright protections

    I'd like to ask everyone here to help police this matter. We are a small site with a single owner/operator and a handful of volunteer moderators. The last thing that we need is a confrontation with the Denver Post (or any site for that matter).

    A single paragraph with a link to the story is probably not going to get us into any trouble, and will most likely be appreciated for the traffic that it drives. Please do your part to keep our little slice of Broncomania in the good graces of our friends who are helping to feed the discussion.

    Please read the following notice:
    http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_16594528


    If anyone has any comments or questions, I can be reached at the following email address: [email protected]

    Thank you.

    I'll just back this up. This is REALLY important, and not just for the post. There are companies that have formed for the sole purpose of copyright litigation against communities such as the mane. Every time anyone posts an entire story (as opposed to a paragraph or two with a link), it opens up the door for these idiot lawyers to pounce.

              I think you should post a copyright notice too TJ. How many times have you seen something that was discussed on the OM in or the basis of a DP article? I've seen it quite a bit. I think the writers from the DP spend a lot of time on the various message boards and rob materials from some good posters in order to get paid and generate discussion. I know it won't work this way, but it should be a two way street.

                Yeah, Mike Mayock picks BroncoWarrior's stuff off right and left.


                PS. you can't copyright opinions about a football team.

                  My parents get the Wall Street Journal in paper form delivered every day, I really enjoy reading it when I go back home. Paper is a great medium as long as someone worthwhile is writing on it.

                    Paper has it's place and I still like real books, mags, papers, but my feelings may change once my books on hold come in from the library. I requested a bunch of Ray Kurzweil's books.

                        Hypocrisy at its finest.

                          I'd prefer no none post anything for the Post. It's a rag.

                            Folks, just to chime in here. This isn't an idle threat being made by a few newspapers. They're basically turning over their copyright infringement enforcement to Righthaven.com. Righthaven is taking an RIAA type stance on this and absolutely hammering the owner of any site where if finds infringement. ANY site. We're not talking about DMCA take down requests - nope, straight to a copyright infringement suit for $75,000 - $150,000 per instance of infringement.

                            For more info see:
                            One of many articles by the LV Sun about the suits. Check the one where a 70 year old retired Navy vet got nailed for posting an article on what looks to be his personal (but publicly accessible) blog.
