Maybe some of you would like to respond to this
are press releases copyrighted?:
To quote what I responded there: In strict terms I would see press
releases as covered by copyright, but not the information in them.
They are theoretically issued to inform, but in some cases to spin an
air of truth into misinformation. When you use them as is, and in
their words you are likely helping to propagate their spin. That
result is sure to outweigh their losses arising from copyright
infringement. I would be surprised to see any cases on this.
