    No, that's a paid service.
    Can't repost it on a public board.
    PPO has had problems with Viking Update articles before getting on this site, people weren't even claiming it was their own content. VU doesn't like it.
    That was just a reminder for those that may not remember that far back.

    Insider on ESPN down to the Viking Update, paid content is not only something you are suppose to pay for, it is also severely copyrighted or at the very least coveted enough to want to protect with legal action.
    Heck, one isn't going to go and repost something from the Star Trib writers and claim it is their own.

    I am sure the agreements to use those paid sights also warns you not to reuse it.
    Just about everything now days has something on it if you look hard enough that basically says "if it isn't yours, don't take it."

    That is why with VU (Vikings Update) articles or anything from Scout.com that are available to the public (non-subscription) post only the title of the article & source
    along with the link & do not include one paragraph or even one sentence of the article itself in the post. That is what I do.

    Also, most articles are copywrite protected. Subscription or no subscription. One should never post the entire article in the post. Only a sentence of it or two of it & provide the link for the rest. It's one of the golden rules here & is there for a reason.

    You don't have to claim it as your own to violate intellectual property & copywrite laws. Posting entire articles can be construed as violating the law.

    On VU, if the article is open for public viewing, I treat it as any other article. I give a link to it and post a few sentences. I don't see those as the same as $$$ protected articles. But I don't subscribe to any of those anyway. I'm too cheap! LOL

    On a serious note can we post PICS? Or should we just send the link?
