Quoting copyright-free material

Sometimes i want to share copyright free very-short stories, i.e. more than the 2-3 sentences, is it allowed?

I think so, but you would have to be sure there was no copyright... ©.
And it helps if you SAY - this is not bound by a Copyright.
So everyone knows.

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru

You can not share copy right material at all

Is the member confusing copyright law with the 2/3 quoted sentences when posting a response?

I thought you could post a couple of lines with a link, I must have posted loads of extracts/quotes without checking (not the same as above not sure why they limited quotes from fellow posters to a few lines)

Hello

Its a fine line yes and no, as the owner of that site and copyright has the final say in use or re use. I get E Mails a lot asking me to remove links or material shared here as it might not line with their beliefs.

Best NOT to use material that clearly states Copyright on it.

It's likely the way copyright is protected will vary from country to country but here in the UK there are clear guidelines when quoting a piece of material over which copyright has been exerted by the author.

The original posting, however, asked about "copyright free' short stories hence there would be no copyright issues anyway. As for whether even this material would be suitable for a discussion-forum based website is moot though because the poster would not be the author of the piece.

Generally on forum-based websites members post their own material be that comments or personal stories for discussion or illustration. Unless there were a particular reason for quoting non-copyrighted material e.g. to open a discussion or reinforce a point being made, I personally can't see a valid reason to do it.
