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?
