In general, limits Internet service providers from copyright infringement liability for simply transmitting information over the Internet. ?        
Service providers, however, are expected to remove material from users' web sites that appears to constitute copyright infringement.
I think those parts will affect the licencing agreement between fastblogit.com and people who post there. 
  • the authors owns the copyright on the items and comments which they write
  • the authors grant (by virtue of their posting in this domain) the host the right to display and process their infomation is whatever manner they deem appropriate. 
    • even if that display is in another domain - we need this because we plan to share items amoung different domains running the fastblogit software

We most definitely need to state what the rules are regarding material like pictures, sounds etc. that are linked to or copied from another website. So far as I know a link does not violate a copyright. I don't know how our way of displaying pictures via a link to another website url is falls into this (unless you are copying from that website to our server).

Mark de LA says
Can we get around these problems as "fair usage" by crediting & providing a link to the original owners of the pictures or other media ?

Mark de LA says
I wonder if copying the entries in a google search such as was done in a comment on 1627 is OK?
