If you’re a SAP business customer, you’ve probably heard of SAP HotNews, a web-based news service. But what is Hotnews? And what can you expect from it? Let’s explore a few of the features. First, HotNews can be tailored to specific applications. You can select a version, sub-module, support package, or even a product family to receive the latest news. In addition, HotNews contains important Notes (also known as “TopNotes”) detailing new SAP features and other critical updates. The newsletter contains reference instructions for users who need to be kept informed about new features and releases.
HotNews is free, and you can customize your subscriptions if you want to receive specific types of news. You can choose to receive updates through email, RSS feed, or both. You can also customize your subscriptions based on the topics you are interested in, such as breaking news stories. If you’d like to receive HotNews regularly, visit your MY AUGI profile and select “Subscribe to HotNews.”
First, Hot News Doctrine was established in 1918 by the United States Supreme Court. At that time, the Copyright Act was not in place, and news was quickly spread through wire services. Those services, along with the Associated Press, were competing for the attention of the public by hiring journalists to cover news events and generate news articles. These articles were then distributed to affiliated newspapers throughout the country. Secondly, Hot News Doctrine protects the commercial value of news. The more recent news is, the more valuable it is.
While SAP HotNews is free to subscribe, it is worth noting that it contains advertisements or spam. It is a fast, easy-to-read news portal that allows you to customize your content based on your preferences. The website is updated frequently, so check for updates from time to time and sign up for its newsletter for more useful news. That way, you’ll be in the loop of industry news, and your business will benefit from it.
While the copyright act protects certain facts, misappropriation of hot news does not. Instead, it falls under the unfair competition doctrine. Misappropriation of hot news does not preclude it from being used by another company, but the copyright act does not protect it. Hot news is a vital resource to your business, so if you think someone is using it, you need to be aware of it. So, take action!
