DO NOT QUOTE whole sections of any article unless you have the author's expressed written consent! NO EXCEPTIONS! Before you post, you need to check the news articles, or websites copywrite expression. Some websites will not even allow you to post a few sentences without written permission.

The proper way to post an online article is to copy the first one to two sentence and then provide the link so others may go to the article and read it.

THE LAW REGARDING FAIR USE:
What is the fair use doctrine? "In certain circumstances, a person or organization can reproduce copyrighted material without paying royalties--fees paid to the copyright holder for the privilege of reproducing the copyrighted material" (Miller & Jentz, 2006, p. 147). Section 107 of the Copyright Act (Title 17, U.S. Code) outlines these provisions. Fair use includes "criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research" (Copyright.gov). Section 107 sets four factors in determining whether or not a particular use is considered fair (Copyright.gov, 2006). The distinction between fair use and infringement may be unclear and not easily defined, because the specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission is not explicitly stated. However, in all cases, quotation and proper citation MUST BE USED when engaging in fair use of the original author's material! Resources: Copyright. (2006). U.S. copyright office. Retrieved November 1, 2005, from http://www.copyright.../fls/fl102.html Miller, R. L. & Jentz, G. A. (2006). Business law today: Instructor's edition (7th Ed.). Thomson/South-Western. Mason, Ohio.
