Disclaimer- The fair use copyright law sec. 107”.
TITLE 17 -- CHAPTER 1 -- § 107
§ 107. Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
Release date: 2005-08-01
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phone records or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—

(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;

(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;

(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and

(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.

The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.

Banners/Tag's in Siggy - You may have up to 2 siggy's in your signature area. Right now there is no size limit. However, please use your best judgment for what is to large. The staff reserves the right to remove signatures that may cause loading problems, or makes visual issues when leaving a post. An example would be that it may cut of another post.

MOST IMPORTANT - This forum is COPYRIGHT aware. We enforce proper tagging. Make sure when using licensed work that all tags are licensed proper at all times. If a tag is not tag'd correct we will remove the tag from the forum.
