If I may reply on Norwegianne's behalf the issue is pretty straightforward, It is called copyright
. If you post a full article copied or cut and pasted from a Newsagency or similar site, you are infringing the rights of the agency which has paid for and owns the copyright.
What does this mean for TRF and other Message Boards? It means we can be threatened with legal action for hosting articles that legally belong to someone else. Other Boards have in fact been so threatened.
To protect the future of these Forums the restrictions on posting full articles have been introduced. This is the policy and everyone is expected to comply.
The TRF Team appreciates the cooperation of all members in this matter.
