Submission + - Newspaper May Have Given Implicit License To Copy ( 1

An anonymous reader writes: Following up on the story of Righthaven, the "copyright troll" that is working with the Las Vegas Journal Review to sue lots of websites (including one of Nevada's Senate candidates) for reposting articles from the LVRJ, a judge in one of the cases appears to be quite sympathetic to the argument that the LVRJ offered an "implied license" to copy by not just putting their content online for free, but including tools on every story that say "share this" with links to various sharing services (including one tool to "share" via Slashdot!).
