Pulling up entire reports

As a copyright teacher, I tend to be a little skittish about
encouraging people to post whole newspaper articles (as opposed to
excerpts, summaries, or cites): I'm not sure that such postings are
a fair use, especially given the size of the list, the presence of
people on the list who lack free LEXIS/WESTLAW, and the availability
of some articles on advertising-supported Web sites. Prof. Fudenberg
was actually kind enough to ask me up front whether he should post
the whole report; it was at my request that he did not do so.
I say this by way of support for Prof. Fudenberg, and as an
expression of my preferences, not as an admonition to others: While
I think that my view is correct as a matter of copyright law, I
realize that others (including other copyright experts) take a
different view. This is an unmoderated list, so if you post the
whole article, I won't have a chance to intercept it; nor will I
start any sort of debate about the copyright issue. But since the
question arose, I thought I'd mention my tentative views on it.
