The long arm of the bunny...

So I saw this story, and I thought this would be great for Lawren's blog. I mean come on a bunch of frat boys throw a party, it gets out of hand, the cops bust it up, and on top of all of that they get sued by Playboy. That is pure blogging gold.

But in the end what caught my eye was the copyright line at the bottom of the story.

The word rewritten is what I'm having trouble with. It just struck me odd, are they trying to protect themselves from someone retyping the whole thing, word for word? Or are they being even more restrictive and implying that you can not paraphrase the content, or quote pieces of the text? Maybe I'm overthinking this a bit, but worst case do they even have the authority to revoke fair use of the article?

p.s. Lawren, Nay thought there was no way she had passed after her big exam, but she did. So drink, have faith, and be glad you only have to wait until September to find out.
