Ordinary copyright rules apply. Quotation of course allowed (with proper citation), but downloading articles and handing them on to others is a criminal offense. I don't remember the exact details of the case I mentioned Citing a Project Muse article without providing some commentary and paraphrase is sort of empty since not everyone on the list has a university library at his/her fingertips.
Mostly I get grumpy at the endless posting of essentially empty posts.

Citing is not illegal. American copyright depends on how much you quote. I don't think that was Carroll's issue. Maybe he can clarify.

Definitely not citation. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

A few years ago actions by Project Muse led to the suicide of an acquaintance. I would rather that articles not available to all should not be cited. Or else the sender should (risking criminal prosecution) first download the article and include the full text in his/her post.
