One of the most ubiquitous features of the internet is the ability to link to content elsewhere. Everything is connected via billions of links and embeds to blogs, articles, and social media. But a federal judge’s ruling threatens that ecosystem. Katherine Forrest, a Southern District of New York judge, ruled Thursday that embedding a tweet containing an image in a webpage could be considered copyright infringement. The decision can be appealed, but if it stands and is adopted by other courts, it could change the way online publishing functions. Here’s what happened: In 2016 Justin Goldman took a photograph of NFL quarterback Tom Brady and Boston Celtics president and manager Danny Ainge in the

Rajon Rondo slamming the idea of Isaiah Thomas‘ tribute video a month ago – “What has he done?” Rondo asked of the other former Celtics point guard – wasn’t just the silent undercurrent of Rondo’s and Thomas’ ejections last night.

7e1a22f5d86543a17b86ea71665d4e07

BOSTON — Brian Scalabrine would have none of the suggestion. After key members of Boston Celtics' 2007-08 title squad reconvened Sunday in Boston for Paul Pierce's jersey number retirement ceremony at TD Garden, Scalabrine was sought out to answer whether the 2017-18 Celtics had any similarities to the championship team of a decade ago. "First of all, let me preface this: No team?was like the 2008 championship team," Scalabrine said. "I'm telling you, I've been a part of this league for a long time now and that was so unique. That team was like no other team I've ever been around." Scalabrine is expertly qualified to opine on the matter, given his reserve role on the 2007-08 team and his position

It started when Thomas, who was due a brief honor from the Celtics after being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers, asked to have his Boston moment moved to the same night of Pierce’s jersey retirement.
