Yes, we know about it.

Not sure what your point is, though.

I have no point... Just curious as to whether it will be making it more difficult to use snippets of articles or more difficult to avoid violating copyright rules...

If any doubt, I'd just post a link and a general statement of what the context is instead of copy/paste a portion of the manuscript...

Don't understand why you'd think that.

The newspapers in question have apparently entered into some sort of agreement with the Newseum that allows them post pdfs of the front pages.

Hot linking to one of them is already prohibited under of our copyright materials policy.

AS for making it more difficult to use snippets of the articles, no, as that is very handilly covered in our copyrighted materials rule. http://thefiringline.com/forums/faq.php?faq=rules_catecory#faq_forum_rules

This usually results in the thread being locked down as a "drive-by". :(

No, a drive-by is where there's little to no commentary to explain what the link is and why we would be interested. <-- That's the short answer.
