Posted: 4 years ago
Dear Members,

We thank you for your continual support to India-Forums. 

Due to certain legal and copyright issues, we are henceforth disallowing members to post scanned images of magazine articles. Any such topics will be trashed by the Bollywood DT without further notice. 

Looking forward to your cooperation in the matter. Please direct all queries pertaining this matter to the site admin, Vijay.

Regards,

Oh, now I know why my Filmfare Scans post disappeared.

Soon we will have a rule saying no more posting articles/links of other sites.

And soon enough there will be a better site than I-F and we'll all dump I-F for good then.

To be fair, if members post full scans and interviews here, anyone reading them will then not bother with buying the magazine. Makes perfect sense to ban sharing of full articles and inside photos, as it potentially causes financial loss to the magazines in question.

I see the argument, but why not stick to one policy? We have articles posted from different sites. Hundreds of people read the article here and IF gets the views and not those actual sites - so they also lose out on the revenue coming from the ads.

Now coming back to scans, they have been posted on Twitter for all to see. And no one can remove them. Magazines or media cannot take any action on them. So how is it wrong if the same is posted on another social media platform like IF?

Bottomline is, I am fine with their argument, but why not stick to the same policy everywhere and for everything?
