GateHouse Media Strikes Again: Claims Headlines, Ledes Are Covered
By Copyright, Threatens Forum

,----[ Quote ]
| Remember GateHouse Media? The regional news 
| company sued the NY Times for linking to it, 
| claiming it was copyright infringement to 
| include the headline and a brief snippet 
| along with the link (you know, like 
| Google...). Amusingly, it turned out that 
| GateHouse Media was doing the same thing. 
| Eventually the two companies settled, and 
| apparently that's convinced GateHouse Media 
| that complaining about such links is a good 
| idea. 


Rumblefish and the Public Domain 

,----[ Quote ]
| The Public Domain is supposed to be a safe 
| place for artists to get content without 
| fear of copyright infringement.
| This permits Rumblefish advertising rights 
| and control over public domain and the 
| content of independent artists.
| (We are the only ones we know of - but we 
| are sure that we are not the only ones)
| This is a violation of our rights as 
| artists.

| edition box set includes a stunning variety 
| of media and collectibles.



Federal court using scare tactics to block sharing of public records

,----[ Quote ]
| It appears that the US Courts, concerned about competition from software that
| offers the possibility of widespread free access to documents filed on
| federal judicial dockets, for which the public would otherwise have to pay
| the courts at the rate of 8 cents a page, are ready to resort to scare
| tactics to discourage lawyers from using that software.
