Until the copyright suit is settled, only DemocracyNow should be cited on DU....
or any other organization which uses a creative commons copyright:

Reprint DN! Transcripts Our creative commons copyright allows you to reprint our transcripts as long as you credit Democracy Now! You can put them in your college or local newspapers, clubs newsletters, or on a web site. You can also email them to friends.

Just to be safe... :P

2. You're probably right. That and stuff clearly labeled as
public domain. Press releases are OK, too, as is independently developed material. Newswire is a good source for press releases. Most government documents and content are usable, as they become public property, unless classified.

There's a wealth of material out there that can be used freely.

6. Think of it. Dozens of posts each day discussing aspects of DN interviews....
People turning off Morning Joe and turning on Amy so they can join in the discussion.

A man can dream can't he?

8. This woman is dreaming too.
It would be beyond refreshing. It would seem like pure ecstasy.

7. Robert Parry allows his articles to be posted IN FULL as long as it is credited and linked.
How fortunate for DU that one of the greatest journalists of the last half century is still so committed to informing the citizenry.

9. bls.gov and other government websites are not going to sue anybody for
copyright infringement. That is for sure. And it's a safe bet that neither will the NY Times or Washngton Post.

Maybe this LasVegasTimesReview-induced "crisis" can be used to improve the quality of the links posted here.

In any case, if moderators start deleting links to mainstream news sources, this site is GOING DOWN.

The disruptors who have plagued this site recently will have won a tremendous VICTORY.

Let's not panic over being one of 96 "infringers" sued by a right-wing-nut-job in LV since March.
