is his posting done by providing the link or by writing it right there?  i
would think in this day & age, there should be no need to write (copy) the
article or whatever right there.  of course, i realize that not ALL articles
are released on the web, so that may be the issue.  but even at that, if it
is posted there with all of the credits given & is not being sold, i don't
see what problem exists.
