One of my favourites on Tumblr, Front Pages, has stopped posting indefinitely. From the blog’s operator:
I received an email on Friday from Paul Sparrow @ Newseum. He requested that reposting of Newseum front page images be discontinued on this tumblr. I will comply to that request, so posting will be halted indefinitely starting tomorrow. Hopefully, we can come to a resolution so that posting can continue here. I will try and state my case as best as I can. There seems to be a copyright issue, even though I’ve never received a complaint directly from the listed newspapers in the past 2 years. We’ll see what happens.
The Front Pages Tumblr posts large jpegs of the day’s front pages from major dailies like The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, pictured above. By providing links to front page stories, the blog acted as a simple but effective tool to integrate a newspaper’s website with its print product.
