It is not illegal to post quotes from the article as long as the source is cited, even if the source charges for viewing.

Okay, so it's ONLY "illegal" if I post the whole thing. But I can post parts, as long as I cite ESPN Insider. Is that a fair enough description of this rule?

Yes, The same issues that online services face in copyrights are the same that newspapers, magazines and periodicals face. Portions, not complete articles, are allowed to be cited as long as the source is given. This does not mean that you can omit one word or letter and get away with publishing the bulk of the article; selective and specific references are allowed and supported by a large body of law.

Also, if I chose to pay for a service, I can give my password for access to another party for his/her viewing. It's just like passing the paper around once bought. That party just shouldn't copy the article. That would be wrong.

So who's going to give us the relevant passage?

It would be wrong if B&G were charging for access to the site. Copyright law does allow the overwhelming majority of what this forum posts.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's illegal to post any, as well as just part of, copyrighted material from a pay site. It's ok to paraphrase, or sum up what they said, but to quote even snippets from one of those sites is illegal. That is, unless they give express consent for others to reproduce it. Which I seriously doubt they give....

It's been illegal all along.
