Copy & Paste. PLEASE READ

Posting links on this board to articles of interest elsewhere helps to broaden rugby knowledge and promote debate. However, done to excess it can be irritating, counter productive and legally risky.

If a link has been posted, wholesale copy/paste of the article’s content is unnecessary –those interested in reading the article can follow the link for themselves. Reproducing the whole article can lead to over lengthy, clunky posts and in the case of content copied from behind a paywall, is a breach of copyright which could cause trouble for us as a board as we could be held liable.

To spark interest in the link, or indicate it’s argument a short summary is quite acceptable – or a selective quote. Either or both is preferable to reproduction of long narrative that can be seen elsewhere.

As Mods we welcome exchange of information or views – but we will edit excessively long cut and paste posts if we have to.

Please follow the above guidelines, for ease of readership and avoidance of legal issues

Very good tool above BSJ which does the elephant work for you, the search button. I was a mod under Stuart’s editorship and recalled there was a discussion on copyright. No relation to an elephant but maybe a distant relationship to an owl!
