NY Times "reprint" fees I've searched recent MeFi threads and found no mention of this, so I hope this is not a duplicate posting. Sometime in May, the New York Times seems to have modified its "email, print friendly" box to include an icon for reprint permissions. It seems to be on every NYT-originated story. See in upper right corner of this example. Click and follow and you soon see that the NYT wants $150 for permission to "republish" one of its stories on the web for informational purposes only. Sounds like the company wants to charge for linking to their stories. Am I wrong? Is posting a link on the web legally the same as "republishing?" Is this another facet of the "deep-linking" controversy? Is this being enforced? Since the NYT still offers the "email to a friend" feature, it must not apply to sharing a single story with another individual. Thanks.
