Skunkworks project "Blackstar" a reality?

Recommended Posts

Aviation Week & Space Technology thinks so. Read this interesting tale of black ops and Groom Lake! As a supporting member for 7 years of the USAF SR-71 program, it heartens me to think that the dreams of Kelly Johnson have not died.bthttp://www.aviationnow.com/avnow/news/chan...ws/030606p1.xmlEdit: Had to edit out the text--we cannot quote copyrighted material verbatim in the forums without permission. However the link "links" to the same opening paragraph I have removed here. Interesting reading, btw... -JC.

Thank you John for taking care of that. I am confused though. Would an extract like that not follow under "fair-use".Not arguing, just asking...bt

"Thank you John for taking care of that. I am confused though. Would an extract like that not follow under "fair-use"."I don't believe "fair use" applies to quoted newsprint on a site like the one in the link--perhaps it does if the extract is shared between individuals, such as between friends or families. But we're a public site and as such have to comply with and respect the "articles may not be reprinted without permission" rules most news media apply to their reports, and that restriction usually protects portions of the reports as well as the reports in their entirety. Not being a lawyer, I have to err on the side of caution--IOTW I could be wrong, but I wouldn't risk Avsim's funds on that chance. -John
