To Fodor Editors

Please explain why you have eliminated my two posts; the first was a fully attributed article from the NYTimes on the election in Kenya and the second post wondered what had become of the first post. I am beginning to think the worst, and considering what I ought to do about it.

my guess is copyright infringement

Would you think it fair if you set up your own site, say www.jess.com and merely cut-and-pasted interesting articles from other publications?

If you are considering what to do about it, you may want to buy a basic treatise on copyright infringement.

thit_cho is right. See article 5. c. of the subcriber's agreement.

It's OK to post a link to an article on another website, just not to copy and paste it.

Jess215, I don't believe that you understand the basics of copyrights. It's not ok to reprint, in any form, a copyrighted work, regardless whether you provide attribution, unless you have the explicit permission of the copyright owner. You are allowed to use brief excerpts -- for example, when providing a link. And it makes no difference if the linked site is a free or a paid site.

When I preview this reply the link appears twice, for some reason but when I click on the SECOND http, I get there. I do not know what I will see when I hit "post" however.
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/22/wo...a/22kenya.html
A couple of more recent articles have been run since, from Reuters, and there was an article in today's magazine secion, featuring the political rivalry (with anti-U.S. overtones) in the north - in particular, the Islamic challenger to Joseph Lemasolai Lekuton. The incumbent, by the way, is the author of Facing the Lion, Growing up Maasai on the African Savanna, - a book I enjoyed.
