Even if a publication is under the control of a publisher, it would make a
lot of sense to allow them to re-use resources that they've already
published, potentially on multiple domains or sub-domains.
Let's take media on the Web: Vox Media could decide to create a publication
about Virtual Reality and re-use content from The Verge, Polygon & Vox for
this purpose.

I don't really think that this is where we can draw a line, or that drawing
any line at all is necessary.
