    I have't figured out how to post the tip jar yet.  I'll keep looking for a link, and will post it ASAP.

    •  Look up. It autoposts. (9+ / 0-)

      BTW, I don't think you have to worry about fair use with a press release: they want the thing to be reposted for all to read.  News stories, magazine articles, op-ed pieces: yes, those are copyrighted and so you have to be careful not to quote too much.

      But a press release?  The whole point of 'em is publicity.  So I think you're okay there.

        Thanks for the tip.  If I get a knock on my door soon, I'm ratting you out!

        I kid, I'll take the rap.

          into their evil hands (I kid!  I kid!).

          The wet-dream of every publicist who has ever written and sent out a press release is that the news publication receiving it will swallow it whole and reguritate it thus, as fact.  When, in fact, the presser is merely their spin on whatever.

          I'm not so sure they would be thrilled to have their presser picked apart by the opposition...but they can hardly object when they've sent it to media all over the area they want to get writing/talking about their issue, or candidate, or whatever, can they?

          Heh: those pressers start with For Immediate Release and IIRC, don't mention copyright or any restrictions on use.  They Want You To Quote Them.
