    Default Linking to other websites

    Although this case is from Europe it probably provides some guidance for linking to things on PT

    Websites can link to freely available content without the permission of the copyright holder, the European Court of Justice says.

    The court's decision came after a dispute in Sweden between journalists and a web company that had posted links on its site to online news articles.

    A Swedish court had asked the EU court to consider whether this broke copyright law.

    The "position would be different" for links that bypass a paywall.

    The journalists worked for the Swedish newspaper Goteborgs-Posten and had articles published on the paper's website.

    The company Retriever Sverige runs a website that provides links to articles published by other websites.
    The accepted practice on PT, as demonstrated here, is that providing a contextual quote and a link to the original source is acceptable - wholesale copy and paste of original material (e.g. new articles, newsletters etc.) is frowned upon.

    Linking to your own material with the intention of driving traffic to your website is only permissable in Caveat Emptor, and then only in reasonable amounts. If you want lots of links from PT please contact Donna about advertising!

    Thanks Cube - your post is a perfect description of what is permitted and some news sites are quite particular about the amount of content that is shared irrespective of the source link posted along with the content.

    What makes us a 'discussion' forum is the user's comments accompanying the news item that is being shared - here is an example of me sharing a news item for discussion.
