Sorry, but we respect the intellectual works of others here at RedState. That means we don’t cut and paste entire articles from either traditional or new media sources 1) because it is copyright infringement, and 2) because we expect others to respect our rights to original material published at RedState.
Now, I am not a lawyer and I’m certainly no expert on copyright law, but my understanding of “fair use” is this: it is permissible to quote limited quantities of material from another source, preferably with a link and always with attribution. “Limited quantities” generally means three (3) paragraphs or so. The diarist is expected to analyze, comment, or otherwise amplify on the quoted material.
Material that you own and publish elsewhere should not be excerpted here, but published in full. It is acceptable to link to your personal blog in acknowledging the cross-link.
Oh, and here’s the link to the Western Gas Fields article, from the Rocket-Courier in Wyalusing, PA.
