Can owners of other sites take news articles off from GMI and post them on there sites? As long as the owner of the site tells where he got it.

Yes, as long as reference (and hopefully a link) is made to GMI, we don't mind sharing information.

Because that's 1) stealing, 2) Copyright infringement 3) ethically challenged and 4) wrong to do.

I bet you download music, camcorder movies and pirate satellite as well eh?

Thanks for asking in advance! That's really responsible and sensible!

I usually cut about 1/3 or 1/2 of the original article and place a link at the end of it for the "full story". Gives credit where credit is due. Of course I'll also include the name of the article and the source/author at the top as well --- unless I'm just quoting a single paragraph as a point in an unrelated post I am making - then I'll probably just post a link.
