: Admin. - A question of propriety

Understanding that there is probably no last word on fly fishing ethics, I often spend time cruising the web for further insight. I recently found what I consider to be a reasonable article on the subject at another forum site. What are the rules about posting links and such to these articles?

The best thing to do whenever you are unsure of copyright restrictions is to just link to it. That solves any questions of who owns what.

Sean,

Thanks for the quick answer.

I am aware of copyright infringement - a definite no, no. I just didn't want to get in the position of posting a link to a competing forum (are you guys in competition?) in a manner like linking to competing commercial sites which has been pointed out is unfair to this forum's sponsors.

Thanks,
ws

I've been wondering about that myself. Nice to know (even a "blind pig can find the occational acorn") I got it right.
:D
