    I received an e-mail today from a publication in regards to a post where a user here cut and pasted an entire article here in the forum.

    I know I've emphasized this before, but with all the new posters here I need to say it again. Please do not post entire articles here in the forum. You can post a sentece or two from the article and provide a link to credit the source, but anything above and beyond that is copyright infringement.

    I've been around to plenty of forums over the years, and yes I know other people do it on other boards and they get away with it, but a lot more eyes watch this forum and we need to be more careful regarding this issue. I'm not calling out the specific poster or the article as they may not have been aware of what they did, however going forward please make sure that complete articles are no longer posted here.
