State 29: EFF You

Excerpted from this post at State 29

From an email by the Des Moines Register: 'It has recently come to the
attention of the Des Moines Register that you have improperly posted
portions of an article the rights to which are held by The Register. A
copy of your unauthorized use can be found at You may link to our site, but you cannot
post more than 3-4 sentences of the story on your site. As the
copyright owner of that article, The Register has the exclusive right
to its reproduction and distribution. We therefore ask that you
immediately remove the posted article from your website and cease any
and all further use of the material. Any continued posting or use will
be considered willful copyright infringement. Within 24 hours of your
receipt of this email, you should reply to this message by confirming
that: 1) each and every posting of Des Moines Register material has
been taken down and 2) you will not engage in any further unauthorized
copying of Des Moines Register materials. If you do not take the steps
outlined above, this matter will be turned over to our attorneys for
further action. Sincerely, Kathy Hickman Executive Assistant to the
VP/Editor'… Dear Kathy, Perhaps you first might want to send a letter
over to Nicholas Johnson. He's been reprinting complete Des Moines
Register stories and opinion pieces for years citing "fair use."
