Most of the most popular "news" reports posted on ATS are reposts of what is currently on the Drudge Report. The Drudge Report finds provocative stories with exaggerated headlines (link bait) and ATS users almost immediately take these headlines and post them on ATS.

copy and paste its a problem, but to use QUOTES actually is a good thing, since if you dont have any source of your discussion, its almost impossible to do a good chat about it, since, well, we are not experts at all subjects, we need something to support ourselves

I think you are partially wrong then

ok ok ....lets think about this...how much copyrighted stuff sits on youtube...

in your last youtube clips that you posted there are several copyrighted clips within that clip alone.

now i am sure ATS is not in the process of being sued....And if they were then they should be announcing it and it would just confirm how the TPTB behave.

which would in turn bring more attention to the site which also would encourage people to speak up even more.

now IF ATS would start to ban this and ban that then what would be the point in trying to expose conspiracy as they happen.

if people Copyright to just make money and hold back the sharing of knowledge then the people should be banning the copyright laws themselves.

I worked in a ESL (English As A Second Language)bookstore for years,
Chinese buyers would come over buy one copy of each book and then run the presses. as they have no copyright.

now i am not saying post an entire book...but backing up your article with verse or text and naming the source and maybe providing a link is a very good thing.

learning takes place by the sharing of information.

not by stopping it's flow.

Never trust someone that has a big Illuminati pyramid in their avatar.

Especially with that $ sign that looks like a snake crawling up a staff.

It's funny how these new users seem to think in nwo terms.

Rains S and Piss 24-7 courtesy of the media, and these people want to make it illegal to examine the substance.

There should be a intensity level for the 'foe' setting.

This one's straight from hell.

Honestly, your idea sounds to me like opening the door to plagiarism, which I fail to see as an improvement over the system we have now, where sources are credited, and quoted verbatim.

What difference does it make to you if the people have to physically type rather than cut and paste the excerpt and link? Why not use technology to make it easier for people to comply with the rules? Your argument doesnt really seem reasonable to me, but rather seems to be motivated by some personal dislike of something.

Man, I am getting so pissed off


I said all this and I am the one OP, foe'd.

How come??
Should I start my own 'de-foe' One Moment thread now???
I don't get it.

Damn, maybe I was the one who received the brunt of OP's frustration but that should be overturned!!!!

You're listening to the wrong sounds then I think because I speak with infrasound, the sounds you hear are echos of your mind.

typically If a segment of a article is used with credit from x page link here . This is usually enough to clear copy right laws.

Pasting whole articles is a copy right no no as well as not referencing it was from the printing company .

Many books often cite other books text for logical back up for their facts and theories .

If you copy and past or rewrite a article make sure it is labeled as a quote from X book , page , or article. Following that removes plagiarism claims or copy right challenges. Rules like that have been used successfully for decades probably back to the 1850s is my guess .

Lol, this is funny. My period key, delete key, all the arrows, and my semicolon button are all broken. I rely on the copy&paste function merely to be able to type with somewhat-proper grammar! Yep, every period I've entered is a ctrl+v.

Err, please DON'T put a ban on the copy&paste function. =)

Only people who like the look of their own text post in pointless threads.

At first I was surprised when pasting a link into a post. I was told I was pasting in a lot of material outside of ATS. That is fine.

  1. It's a good reminder to people that constantly copy and paste within ATS to spam the same message over and over again in multiple threads to avoid the practice.
  2. It's a good reminder to people that copy and paste the same info multiple times in the same thread to avoid the practice.
  3. It's a good reminder to people that copy and paste other people's work without reference that they might be violating copyright law.

Very good Bullets points, stereologist..

I've noticed more and more websites are attaching their URLs to the copied text,
Newspapers are desperate to find new ways of making money, people will be able to post their links but that leaves the ethical question:

do you promote websites that do not allow you to use their material?

I'm a firm believer in using academia as a guideline...treating copy/paste as a block quote, and that only a small percentage of the post should be such a quote. (and, on the web, a link to the source should be provided).

The real value of a post comes from the author's viewpoints, analysis of the info, and presentation of it, otherwise, we'd just read the source.

I write most of my posts and threads in word for spelling and grammar reasons. Then I paste them... The message pop up we get now is most annoying and so I vote NO don't ban copy and paste!!

I also find it a slight annoyance that we appear to have a minimum character limit on external inserts. This is a silly idea, although I agree we don't need to quote everything, sometimes it cuts off the point of posting the external information needed and you have to cut the -

in two.

I like to read information integrated into ATS, as opposed to having lots of windows open. Also there are some pages people cannot get to due to firewall restrictions etc..

Exactly. In addition to providing links to the quoted material, posters should also indicate edits and deletions by using ellipses (...) and/or brackets [edited for brevity], etc. That way readers can get a sense of the flow or coherence of the original.
