If you blog you should read this and know your rights

NEWSPAPER THREATENS BLOGGER: Seems pretty lame to me.


This highlights something every blogger should know... be sure to read the rest of the article!
As I wrote regarding the same letter sent to Councilor Medlock, excerpting copyrighted material for the purpose of criticism is covered by the fair use exemption, and linking to content cannot be a copyright violation because nothing is actually copied. The threat is empty, an attempt at using intimidation to silence my criticism of their editorials and news coverage. [BatesLine]
