Things have changed since many newspapers websites are now subscription-based. The logic is that if someone else posts the articles for free, then people won’t buy the newspaper or pay for the online subscription to read it.
In terms of reproduction, if you post 30 words or less, it is okay. Previously, we posted links the articles but with the majority of articles needing a subscription to view, we received numerous complaints from CFL.ca visitors about not being able to read the articles. In the end, we had to evaluate the time and effort put into that section for the results it was producing as well as the reaction from CFL.ca visitors.
By posting articles, we are in essence republishing the stories that, for many media outlets, are available via subscription-only. As the internet and these rules have changed, we’ve had to adhere to the new policies of the newspapers.
