I have decided that the inclusion of headlines from other news sources, along with the citations to the original sources on the web, constitutes “fair use” in the context of this educational blog. This blog is designed to inform voters and citizens about important environmental and chemical matters, to help people develop informed opinions on these complex subjects.
So, the World Headlines are back.
This topic is too important, the misinformation too substantial, and the good information too widely scattered, for me to stop providing selected world headlines in good conscience.
Also, now that I have figured out del icio us, there is a second feed of 10 recent headlines from sites I have tagged.

Because of another major lawsuit regarding the use of RSS feeds as reported by PCWORLD.com, this time by the Associated Press against Verisign’s Moreover news aggregation service, I have for the moment deleted my feed of selected world headlines on environmental and Green Chemistry topics from this site’s blogroll. This is a nonprofit site with no revenue-generating mechanism for me (unless you buy a book at Powell’s Bookstore from my personal recommended book list by clicking through to Powell’s from this site), but I need to explore the legal issues of the RSS feeds in more detail. Unfortunately.
