Topic - EDITORS SUMMIT: TOPIC ONE: Climbing news in the Internet age

Michael Ryan - on 09 Oct 2008
This week is the American Alpine Club International Climbing Editors Summit. UKClimbing.com Editor Jack Geldard is there with climbing editors from around the globe discussing climbing media topics. (see NEWS ITEM:http://www.ukclimbing.com/news/older.html?month=10&year=2008#n45366)

We will be publishing some of the topics they will be discussing in our forums so that you, if you wish, can join the debate.

TOPIC ONE:

Climbing news in the Internet age.

What are our guidelines for publishing photos and text found on the Web (copyrights)?

What about fact-checking information, publishing photos with route lines that haven't been climbed, and reporting illegal or unwelcome ascents?

What do we think about “exclusivity” in first ascents, where media sponsors “lock up” information about an expedition until they have reported it first?
