Regarding copyvio[edit]

The "Some info was copied from AFP" notice on VOA articles, from what I understand, does not mean that VOA actually copied the information from AFP, but only used them as a source (and paraphrased it, sort of like what we do). VOA's copyright disclaimer says: You are welcome to use any material that is published by voanews.com [...] There is no need to request further permission. There is no mention in the disclaimer about any prose being copyrighted. Tempodivalse [talk] 22:52, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

That's my interpretation too for AFP and Reuters. Concerning AP, the VOA article uses a photo, which is indeed copyright:
Associated Press: VOA has a license from Associated Press to use AP photos and graphics. All AP material is copyrighted and the property of Associated Press, and may not be copied, published or redistributed without the written permission of Associated Press. Associated Press text, photo, graphic, audio and/or video material shall not be published, broadcast, rewritten for broadcast or publication or redistributed directly or indirectly in any medium. Neither these AP materials nor any portion thereof may be stored in a computer except for personal and non-commercial use. AP will not be held liable in any way to the User or to any third party or to any other person who may receive information in the Service or to any other person whatsoever, for any delays, inaccuracies, errors or omissions therefrom or in the transmission or delivery of all or any part thereof or for any damages arising from any of the foregoing or occasioned thereby.
