    Looks like the Bangkok Post no longer allows links to its site.

    it allows links, but doesnt allow anything else.

    Republishing policy

    Post Publishing Plc. has joined the "Society for Online News Providers" (SONP). The formation is aimed primarily at protecting the proprietary material of news websites. SONP policy states that RSS feeds are the proper way for other web sites to receive content from news providers.

    To assist readers in making fair use of content from the Bangkok Post, Post Publishing Plc. has introduced official RSS feeds that web publishers, webmasters, website owners and any person may use to reproduce content from the Bangkok Post. The official RSS feeds typically contain a headline, a 100-150 character summary and a URL link back to the original full-text article on the Bangkok Post website for each story in the feed. Only the official RSS feeds can be used for this purpose. Content of the feeds can not be altered. For details on how to use the official RSS feeds, please refer to this http://www.bangkokpost.com/wireservice/affiliated.html link or contact our Web Master at komsantj@bangkokpost.co.th directly.

    We trust our readers will understand that while we encourage fair use of the Bangkok Post, unauthorized replication of content in excess of fair use does impact on our business and the livelihood of our employees.

    Web readers can refer to or quote Bangkok Post contents only by posting a headline with a URL link to the source page on the Bangkok Post website.

    Please note that;

    1. Post Publishing does not permit web publishers, webmasters, website owners and any person to republish content from the Bangkok Post in any other manner from that described above (RSS feed) without written permission. If any persons or entities copy, reproduce, modify, publish, distribute, rent, lease or otherwise use for any commercial or other unlawful interests or purposes, whether in any manner, any intellectual properties of Post Publishing which include but do not limit to information, data, news, contents, photographs, images, pictures, sounds, logos, icons, software, trademarks, service marks, trade names, patent, source codes, know-how and all other materials on the RSS feed service without our written consent, we reserves the right to promptly take legal action against any wrongdoer to the maximum extent allowed by the applicable laws; and
    2. Web publishers, webmasters, website owners and any person who use the official RSS feeds acknowledge that in normal journalistic industry practice, errors occasionally occur, and Post Publishing makes no warranties as to the sequence, completeness, accuracy and/or reliability of our authorized contents or intellectual properties displayed on Post Publishing websites or the official RSS feeds. In addition, Post Publishing shall not warrant and represent that our authorized contents and the use of our RSS feed service will be merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, satisfactory quality, uninterrupted or error free, free of bugs, or that all defects will be corrected; or that the service will meet your needs. Notwithstanding stipulated to the contrary in this Republishing Policy, Post Publishing provides our authorized contents or intellectual properties and RSS feed service without warranty of any kind.

    Seems reasonable.

    DD loved his news forum so I was scared to raise the issue in case he called me an f'ing kont but it seems fairer to only copy a bit of the article and then link back to the source website as the news article is really their intellectual property.

    It was piss poor work from the person putting it up. I cut and pasted the whole article after words because it does not take a genius to work out how to do that. Was that deleted then? Is BKP so anal about it? Weirdos.
