Turnitin and fair use

Turnitin and fair use

Parent article: Turnitin and fair use

I feel that I have to echo a few of the comments here.  I started to read the article and
wonder what on earth it was going on about?  Pretty poor, and to be honest, if I really wanted
to follow that kind of thing I'd go to Groklaw for details on it.

So why was this the main article on the front page of LWN?  Surely a link on the news page was
enough, there is more than enough Linux related items going on at the moment.

Why it's in LWN

This article is on the LWN front page because I asked PJ to write it. Like it or not, copyright issues and the real meaning of "fair use" are relevant to the work we do. This case raises some interesting questions in that regard, so I asked for a closer look.

I do agree that a heavier editorial hand could have been applied; that is my fault.
