Copying New York Times for GRE Purposes
fair use defense but we don't think you'll succeed because it sounds like you're reproducing complete articles, and because your use, although slightly transformative, probably doesn't tip the four fair use factors strongly in favor of a solid defense (keep in mind that the New York Times charges for its articles or limits access to them). News syndicates like the New York Times, AP and others, seek to halt practices that use their content for other purposes. So unless you maintain a low profile, chances are fair-to-good -- considering the piracy detection software that's available -- that at some point you'll find a cease and desist letter in your mailbox.
