This is a shameless plug for a great foundation named Right 2 Link.

Many of your will link to other webpages on your site. This right is under threat. Signup to support the Right 2 Link campaign @ http://www.right2link.org/

You can even get a nice badge for your site @ http://www.right2link.org/blog-office...

Thanks in advance,

James

Sorry I am all for freedoms but you also have a right to protect your links and or intellectual property....These people think all the hard work of others should be totally free if it is in a digital media....but they all expect a paycheck for their own work

All you're doing is providing an inbound link which surely increases traffic thus more money from ads?

James....I am with you on probably 99% of this issue.However there does need to be some sort of fair middle ground worked out.

Hhmm, slighty mixed on this. According to the website, and that's if they are telling the truth, you could be claimed for copyright by just clicking on a link that lead to these sites.

Personally I believe it is the Newspapers responsibility to look after their content. They could easily set up a content barrier, requesting the user subscribe to read if they wanted too.
