I'm in Los Angeles, CA, USA.
Before posting this message, I did various searches but, maybe because of my choice of words, I couldn't find anything to assist with my question.
So, (Q1) if I wished to go through all my different local newspapers, and compile say for example the broadcast-industry-managerial job listings in each of them into one big aggregate listing, and then publish that - could I do so without fear of prosecution?
Or, (Q2) if I telephoned/emailed each company that had placed an ad, and asked them for their permission to publish the details of their job vacancy, would that be OK if they said yes?
(Q3) Does this question have any similarities with the 1980s case against the Trivial Pursuit inventors, who were taken to court because they had copied questions from an exisiting book of trivia - but they won because they had used MULTIPLE sources for questions (many books, not just one), and it was classed as research, not plagiarism.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
