When using off-AVEN sources of information can people please remember copyright law. 

 

Posting a link to an article is fine. That way the author gets it tagged as a hit and any payments or royalties due to them. Citing a couple of sentences from an article to back up your point, with references is acceptable (look at the "references" section on most Wikipedia articles for examples) 

 

Copy-pasting whole articles, or uncredited excerpts is not acceptable under any circumstances and we have no option but to delete such posts. Because of the risk of legal action being taken against AVEN this is considered behaviour which could be subject to disciplinary review
