Blogger riles local paper - Lawsuit threatened

A Tulsa blog named "BatesLine,"run by Michael Bates, has come under fire from a local paper for copyright infringement because he links to or references Tulsa World articles on his blog. The newspaper is totally out of line on this one, and Bates does an excellent job of explaining why.

Also includes a link to Matt of Nerf-Coated World, who provides some guidelines for bloggers on Fair Use, where using hyperlinks falls in regards to copyrights, etc.
