Posting private emails exchanges in a public forum, irrespective of their content, is pretty lame. Moreover, the title of this thread is clearly overdramatic. At the end of the day, this is just a minor dispute and not something that threatens the very existence of the forum! 

 

Big boys can handle their problems on their own without turning it into a public spectacle.

Neither would I. Evidently, you don't do divorce law (I didn't). :)

Actually I have, and I *still* wouldn't have thought of it.  ?

 

I do remember one case, not in our office, involving the divorce of an overweight attorney whose suit jackets strained to stay closed against a single button in front of his belly.  When his wife got served with the papers, she went through his closet and snipped that button off of all of his suits.

It was only buttons. It could have been a lot worse. He was lucky not to have been married to Lorena Bobbitt. :)

I'd say that was a suitable response.

Let's see if I can provide a hypothetical closer to home.

 

Quote

 

Suppose there is a photo sharing service called "PSS" that takes photos from your website and sends them out to people who are interested in your work, including private parties, dealers who may display photographers' work on their sites, etc. 

 

By publishing a photo, it doesn’t automatically give the right of another publisher to republish ie copy the photo. That’s the point here. 

 

Of course its the intention of RSS, according to the designers and most users of RSS to allow republishing ie syndication. 

 

Unfortunately my understanding is that copyright law does not take into account that an RSS document is different than an HTML or text document or PDF.

 

You are not necessarily allowed to copy or republish a document which isn’t s copyrighted. Is the RSS copyrighted? That’s an important question.

Quote

You can set your PSS to share a couple of photos as a teaser and a link to your own site, or to share every last photo. Either intentionally or accidentally, you set your PSS to send all your photos. The traffic to your website drops. 

 

Is the better solution *for you* to start contacting people who've been getting your PSS feed and demand they each take down all the photos you send, or all but a couple, or to click a mouse and set your PSS to share a couple of photos and a link? 

 

Of course it shouldn’t be this way but the copyright law wasn’t written properly for the Internet (in my opinion)

Why is everyone discussing how it would be “easier” to fix one way or the other?  Standing up for what’s right isn’t always easy.  It would appear that Chris is in the right on this one.  

 

Actually, it's pretty clear he's wrong:

The relevant point here is that he is not representing the content as his own.

 

If the RSS feed pushed only the title, and he had some other mechanism to scrape the content and deposit it on his website, then maybe you would have a valid objection.  But the RSS feed itself pushed the content, whether out of intent or ignorance is not relevant.  The source is attributed, and it links back to the source, thus potentially generating internet traffic for the original site.

 

Aaron Swartz republished documents behind a paywall, not documents that were pushed by RSS.  

 

If Nature pushed its entire content by RSS feed, and Aaron Swartz aggregated and displayed that feed, he would not have committed an infringement (intentional or otherwise).

 

-- note that Aaron Swartz went on to commit suicide.

 

I know these details very well. I know the intention of designers of RSS very very well. I also know that people’s intentions about how the Web is supposed to work, and that information should be free, are not what the law says. Copyright is copyright and that can allow bad things.

 

I believe Aaron had great intentions but unfortunately got caught on the wrong side of the legal system. Terrible.

Hi,

At this point, it is obvious the ToneAudio person does not want you to share his material.

 

I would remove the feed so he gets less clicks to his site, as on here, no one will know about it as the rss feed is missing.

 

It is not worth the ink on the computer screen.

 

Regards,

Shadders.

P.S. From the article you linked to:

Disclaimer

I have rudimentary legal training in UK media law, but my training is several years old, and you’d be insane to take legal advice from some random bloke off the internet anyway. Nothing in this post is meant as actual legal advice — talk to your solicitor, that’s what they are there for!

 

How about from actual attorneys then?

Keep digging. 

 

Then please quote everything rather than the selected option that you think supports you.

Did you actually read it before you sent it?

 

 

Yep, and the more you try to defend your stance given that Jeff has already contacted you informing you that his intentions are/were not to allow his full article to be published on your site, the more indefensible your stance becomes.

What is your actual point of posting as a new member on this thread only?  What agenda do you have?
