The difference between posting the top 10 of the Philippine Bar and reproducing that infamous editorial on the Philippines from the New York Times

Again, I would want to give each comment here a response but have fallen way behind — this one, though, elicited a reaction from me which I just had to post here:

Ben, (who didn’t leave me a URL to track back to) wrote a comment to my post on that New York Times editorial in reference to my post on the Philippine Bar Top 10 :

Hmmmm you copied and pasted the Philippine BAR results and afraid to do the same for the NY Times editorial?

I think what I wrote speaks for itself.  There are Terms of Use for news articles which differ from publication to publication.  Besides, the Philippine Bar Top 10 is public domain so to speak.  It’s public information and is not tainted by journalistic copyright which is why The New York Times does not make its archives open to non-members/non-subscribers.  That’s their prerogative, but nobody can lay claim to have journalistic proprietorship of the list of successful examinees.  Thanks for dropping by all the same, Ben.
