    Dear members,

    From now on can you please refrain from posting full articles from the Herald

    We have been in trouble before and we don't want this to happen again

    We know how frustrating paywalls are but in the case of the herald it's worth the $3 or $4 a week so we encourage you to subscribe

    If you don't want to subscribe that's fine

    From now on please just post the headline and link or a brief summary of whats in the article

    Once again we know it's frustrating and this won't be a popular move but we as staff must protect the forum

    Thanks Everyone,

    It doesn't have to be a brief summary.
    You can't have copywright over facts.
    All the Herald has copywright over is their words.

    If anyone wants to take the time to list every fact in an article, and even the opinions, and do it in their own words, that's perfectly legal.

    In short, their words are what they own - not the facts.

    If anyone is desperate - the blind radio newspaper service puts up a podcast of the Newcastle heard at 10 every morning. Sport generally starts about 2/3rds of the way through.

    I’ve got an electronic subscription to the Herald, it’s money well spent.

    Dumb question with a electronic subscription can you login on multiple devices or just one?

    I have posted a few times before that there is a very simple way to still view the articles. No need for posting the full article at all.
