I’m reading Anthony DeRosa’s post again on how some traditional media companies refuse to enter into the link economy.
The practice is also prevalent here in Tumblr, it seems.
Photos and articles are sometimes posted sans attribution or links to the sources.
Other Tumblr users, meanwhile, delete the link to the original tumblelog that posted the material.
No. If it’s on the web, it’s not yours. You can’t pull out the fair-use-clause card if you don’t attribute or you try to claim something that is not yours.
