ADMIN, quoting from sources

The Fair Use Doctrine allows people to quote from copyrighted material. Here's how it works for blogging.

Keep quotes to two paragraphs. For long documents (longer than standard newspaper articles) you can quote up to four paragraphs.

Also, you need to clearly identify the source and provide a link to the original material. If you don't know how to create a link, just include the URL.

  • I didn't know this. This is very useful since I quote things all the time...

  • So let me get this Straight

    It's Bad to Plagarize from Mainstream Media

    But if I want to Plagraize from racist sources like the Klan or Stormfront it's Okay

    I cant' believe that you are allowing the tenets of white supramecy to be espoused on your site

    Are you some kinda racist or what?
