    is news that is posted in macrumors copyrighted? like if someone on another forum copies the same thing from here, can they get in trouble?

    now i don't do this, and i'm not trying to get anyone in trouble, i was just curious

    at the bottom of the page,

    however it looks like Arn has forgotten to update the dates! :D

    While I do not hold the official word, personally I dont think there is a problem with reusing news articles as long as you give credit where credit is due.
