Posting of copyrighted material

It has come to my attention (by an author) that the posting to coral-list
of copyrighted material may not consitute "fair use" of the material, and
may in fact result in financial harm to the originating news agency.  I
would therefore like to request that coral-list subscribers NOT post
verbatim news articles published at other sites.  If the story has a URL
at that new agency, then (at least tentatively, until I hear to the
contrary), I would like to ask that you just post the URL to the list, if
you feel it is noteworthy.

I am sure you will all appreciate the reasoning behind this requirement.
