Blog publishing?

is posting to my blog considered copyrighted? If I post a new idea or work of fiction, is it protected under cpyright rules?

From my search of the web it seems that this is going to take a lobby group to enact. Here’s a link you can check out that speaks to the murkiness of it www.docuverse.com/blog/donpark/

RSS and Atom Feeds: Really Simple Syndication

RSS feeds are revolutionizing the way that information is being processed on the Internet. Even Google just started their own Google Reader for RSS feeds this month.

What is the legal status of RSS feeds under Internet Law and IP Law (“intellectual property” law), especially in view of the fact that many blogs and news media make their content available through their RSS feeds? We include ATOM feeds here under the general rubric of RSS feeds, i.e. As “Really Simple Syndication”. Indeed, the IEEE sees Atom as the “standard in syndication”, even though the term RSS is everywhere used.

Implied Licenses Granted by Placing Material Online?

Eric Goldman at the Technology & Marketing Law Blog discusses whether making RSS feeds publicly available thereby grants an implied license of use to RSS feed users, and if so, how such an implied license could be negated, if necessary. But see Fair Use Vs. Fared Use: The Impact of Automated Rights Management on Copyright’s Fair Use Doctrine by Tom W. Bell, 76 N. Carolina L. Rev. 557 (1998).

As Goldman writes:
“[I]f a blogger makes a feed of his/her blog available, what can others [legally] do with that content?”

Take a look at his analysis and see also Scobleizer for a panoply of opinions on this topic. The non-exclusive implied license granted by placing materials online is also discussed at When One Thing Leads to Another – Linking and Metatag Liability, by Barbara S. Murphy and Lynn S. Walker, Georgia State University College of Law, Law and the Internet, Professor Wiseman, Summer 2003 (see II.1 in that article).

The Legality of Data Harvesting (not to be confused with E-Discovery Harvesting)

One issue that faces RSS feeds is the practice of “data harvesting” for purposes of creating websites which then sell ads to make money. Martin Schwimmer at the Trademark Blog refers to a ClickZ article by Pamela Parker which refers to other instances of data harvesting such as the ad aggregator Oodle.com or the job aggregator Indeed.com.

There are data harvesting cases which have been decided and which clearly support the principle that data harvesting is legal under some circumstances. See the article Golf Scores v. Yacht Sales: Copyright Law and Data Extraction by Javad Heydary and By No Other (related USA Today, Nautical Solutions Marketing v. Boats.com). At the same time, there are also cases which clearly have found other kinds of data harvesting to be illegal, albeit not necessarily on copyright infringement grounds, e.g. Register.com, Inc. V. Verio, Inc., 126 F. Supp. 2d 238 (S.D.N.Y. 2000), aff’ d, 356 F.3d 393 (2d Cir. 2004). See Phillips Nizer for an abstract of that case and the Boston University School of Law, Journal of Science and Technology Law, Legal Update by James J. Tracy for a contract view of browsewrap agreements.

Terms of Use for RSS Feeds

The terms of use for RSS feeds published by mainstream publishers such as the New York Times clearly claim a full copyright to content syndicated by RSS feeds. These terms of use strictly exclude commercial use such as commercial data harvesting.

The New York Times offers over 30 free RSS feeds, albeit under the following terms and conditions:

“We encourage the use of NYTimes.com RSS feeds for personal use in a news reader or as part of a non-commercial Web site or blog. We require proper format and attribution whenever New York Times content is posted on your Web site, and we reserve the right to require that you cease distributing NYTimes.com content. Please read the Terms and Conditions for complete instructions.

NYTimes.com also offers a free headline feed for displaying headlines on personal or professional Web sites, for non-commercial purposes. For more information and instructions, see Add New York Times Headlines to Your Site.”

Use of Headlines Written by Other Sources

With regard to the use of headlines, the Japanese Intellectual Property High Court recently decided that it was copyright infringement for a commercial online enterprise – without asking for permission – to use newspaper headlines on its website from Japan’s largest daily newspaper. We do not doubt that courts in other countries would make similar holdings.

Fair Use of RSS Feeds and Attribution

The free use which the New York Times offers is essentially an expanded “fair use”, i.e. Use of news on a “non-commercial Web site or blog”. This is essentially similar to the “Creative Commons” license found at the bottom of the LawPundit blog pages, where use of LawPundit material – with proper attribution – is permitted for non-commercial purposes. The NY Times also requires proper attribution of their materials, although attribution has an unclear status in copyright law as far as “fair use” of copyrighted materials is concerned.

As written by Mark A. Lemley, Rights of Attribution and Integrity in Online Communications, 1995 J. ONLINE L. , art. 2, par. 20:

“Both of these cases [Waldman Publishing Corp. V. Landoll Inc. And Robinson v. Random House Inc)] suggest that a right of attribution does in fact exist in United States law, at least in circumstances where the failure to attribute has a commercial effect. If you copy material without identifying it as copied, that fact may hurt you in a copyright infringement suit. Even if you cannot be sued for copyright infringement, your failure to attribute copied material may be actionable under the Lanham Act if it confuses consumers as to the source of the copied material. Taken together, these cases suggest that the worst cases of nonattribution will be taken care of by the existing law.”

Attribution not required for Works in the Public Domain

The rule is different for works in the public domain, where attribution is not required. This was decided in Dastar Corp. V. Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp., 539 U.S. 23 (2003). See Stacey L. Garrett, No need to Search the Nile: The Supreme Court Clarifies the Use of Public Domain Works in Dastar v. Twentieth Century Fox, Journal of Law, Technology & Policy (Univ. Of Illinois), Fall, 2003.

Where is the Line between Commercial and Non-Commercial Use?

The line between a non-commercial or commercial website or blog is not clear. In Harper & Row v. Nation Enterprises, 471 U.S. 539 (1985) , the US Supreme Court found:

“The fact that a publication was commercial as opposed to nonprofit is a separate factor that tends to weigh against a finding of fair use. “[E]very commercial use of copyrighted material is presumptively an unfair exploitation of the monopoly privilege that belongs to the owner of the copyright.” Sony Corp. Of America v. Universal City Studios, Inc., 464 U.S., at 451 . In arguing that the purpose of news reporting is not purely commercial, The Nation misses the point entirely. The crux of the profit/nonprofit distinction is not whether the sole motive of the use is monetary gain but whether the user stands to profit from exploitation of the copyrighted material without paying the customary price. See Roy Export Co. Establishment v. Columbia Broadcasting System, Inc., 503 F. Supp., at 1144; 3 Nimmer 13.05[A]1., at 13-71, n. 25.3.”

Many websites and blogs place advertising on their online pages to help pay for costs, e.g. Of webspace, etc. And are not really “commercial” undertakings as such, nor are they generally viewed to be “commercial” in nature. Where will the courts draw the line?

What happens, for example, when an otherwise “non-commercial” website or blog is so successful that its commercial ads begin to reap actual profits for the website or for the blogger? Once that happens, such websites or blogs surely become “commercial” in nature, which makes it much more difficult, but not impossible, to invoke the “fair use” exception to the copyright laws.

But even if no profit is being made, could a site harvesting RSS feeds use RSS feed material to promulgate e.g. Pornographic advertising on a website in the hope of gain? The answer here must surely be “no”, and evidence of purpose, rather than profit, ought to be sufficient.

Clear Terms of Use are Important

In any case, put into different words, RSS feeds “belong” as such to the originator of the RSS feed. Fair use can be made of these feeds, but not commercial use. The solution for the “grey cases” may be in part that RSS feed originators clearly declare the permissible uses of their materials on the website pages. The New York Times terms of use listed here provide a good model to start. Of course, no copyright holder can prohibit lawful fair use, even if such fair use were to be expressly denied by the copyright owner. There will be friction in this grey area.

What about RSS Feed Catalogues?

The most interesting legal question in this connection is whether the use of RSS feeds for legitimate “cataloging purposes” by a commercial enterprise, such as Technorati or Google BlogSearch, is fair use. We think it is in principle, because we find it to be a permissible “transformative use” as in the Arriba case. However, we do not know what the courts will decide in this regard.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Degree

Laura asks…

What is the MSN/MPH degree?

What kind of jobs can you get? I am having trouble finding out what the degree means and the job market for it.

barry0912 answers:

The MSN/MPH is a dual degree. The MSN stands for Master’s of Science in Nursing. The MPH stands for Master’s of Public Health. The job market is wide open for any degree in the medical field. The Master’s of Science in Nursing allows you to teach nursing, practice, management, or any job in nursing. The MPH degree focuses on public health and involves jobs such as the public health department and epidemiology such as agencies like the Center’s for Disease Control (Atlanta, GA). Do an internet search on just Nursing employment and you will see all the opportunities available. Public health just happens to be one small part of health care. Good Luck!

Daniel asks…

What degrees would you need for these jobs (10 points!)?

http://blog.lincolnedu.com/2013/01/digital-marketing-computer-development-named-most-in-demand-creative-jobs/

front end development
digital marketing
content development / online copywriting

barry0912 answers:

If this field is something you want to do, you should probably look at doing a business degree with a concentration in Information Systems. That will give you the IT knowledge with the business background that is relevant such as marketing. I’m qualified to do this job.

Before you enroll with this particular school you need to look at the reviews, pick a school that is accredited from a reputable source. Many schools you see on the internet are scams and since school is expensive you don’t want to come out and not be competitive in your field.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing

Donna asks…

How does Internet marketing differ from traditional marketing?

barry0912 answers:

Contrary to popular belief, internet marketing does not differ too much from traditional marketing.

The internet affords us a faster and more convenient way to reach our target audience. It also expands our target audience to include those globally, where traditional marketing would be focussed more on local targets. Those points would make up the main differences.

One of the very exciting things about internet marketing is that it opens the floodgates for the everyday man or woman in the street to participate in an arena where they can own their own business, for minimal outlay and small ongoing costs.

When you cut through all the hype and clutter online, its very easy to see that the traditional marketing systems, focuses and requirements are still there. Its just that many enterprising folks have found a way to make things easier and faster, via the internet.

For those that wish to adventure into internet marketing, my most important piece of advice is to follow, or model, someone else’s success. There are plenty of internet marketers that have had sensational success, the only challenge is to be able to sort out the real from the make believe.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Strategies

Donald asks…

what is digital marketing strategy?

barry0912 answers:

Digital marketing is marketing that makes use of electronic devices such as computers, tablets, smartphones, cellphones, digital billboards, and game consoles to engage with consumers and other business partners. Internet Marketing is a major component of digital marketing.

Digital marketing is a marketing process which leads to the development of any organization or brand by using a variety of digital channels such as email, social networks etc.
Digital Marketing can be defined as promoting of brands or products and services using all forms of digital advertising. Digital marketing uses Television, Radio, Internet, mobile and any form of digital media to reach customers in a timely, relevant, personal and cost-effective manner.
Apart from using many of the techniques and practices contained within the category of Internet Marketing, digital marketing extends beyond this by including other channels that do not require the use of the Internet. Due to non-dependence on the Internet, the field of digital marketing includes a whole lot of elements such as mobile phones or cell phones, display / banner ads, sms /mms, digital outdoor, and many more.

Thomas asks…

Has anyone been able to find any internet marketing or sales techniques/strategies that have worked for them?

If so, please explain. Thank You in Advance!

barry0912 answers:

It depends highly on what you are trying to market. The best answer is to hire a professional. We have dedicated our life to marketing and how it works.

Why do you not grow your own food, make your own clothes, build your own car, or perform your own surgery? Because it is easier and cheaper in the long run to trust a professional to do it for you.

Same thing with marketing. You’ll put out a little cash now and reap big rewards later.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing News

Susan asks…

drawbacks of internet marketing?

barry0912 answers:

Personally I think internet marketing is the way to go but if you are looking for drawbacks, its the X factor. Entire weekends where online usage drops dramatically. I am not talking about Christmas, or an invasion someplace where everyone is watching the news. I am talking about random weekends where a large percentage of the population just inexplicably shuns their computers. But having said that— it isn’t a big deal in the overall scheme of things.

Paul asks…

www. in internet marketing.?

I had read somewhere that when you’re doing internet marketing, and using google search engine optimization for example, that having the (www) part of the web address is very important as apposed to not having it.

For example http://www.abc.com will be understood or found by google whereas http://abc.com won’t be.

Is this true? How important is the www?

barry0912 answers:

Many web addresses begin with www, because of the long-standing practice of naming Internet hosts (servers) according to the services they provide. The hostname for a web server is often www, as it is ftp for an FTP server, and news or nntp for a USENET news server. These host names appear as Domain Name System (DNS) subdomain names, as in www.example.com. The use of such subdomain names is not required by any technical or policy standard and many web sites exist without a www subdomain prefix, or with some other prefix such as “www2”, “secure”, etc. These subdomain prefixes have no consequence; they are simply chosen names. Many web servers are set up such that both the domain by itself (e.g., example.com) and the www subdomain (e.g., www.example.com) refer to the same site, others require one form or the other, or they may map to different web sites.

If you want to know more about internet marketing I’d suggest you download the free ebook here:http://tinyurl.com/237cvqj .
