    Fair use of Copyrighted Materials

    Post by Susan on Fri Jul 30, 2010 5:43 pm

    The following Copyright Act, is how this forum operates under fair use of copyrighted materials. This is why you will see, when I do quote a news article, I use the word: "Excerpt"; followed by the material copied in quotes. You will notice, that always I site the original news article, by linking back to the source. If you choose to post any copyrighted materials here, you must abide by the law, governing such materials. NEVER quote an entire article. If you do, you will find yourself liable and on moderation. If the offense continues, then you will be removed as a member of this forum. This forum IS NOT LIABLE for member postings. We will abide by the law, regarding this subject matter.

    What is the fair use doctrine? "In certain circumstances, a person or organization can reproduce copyrighted material without paying royalties--fees paid to the copyright holder for the privilege of reproducing the copyrighted material" (Miller & Jentz, 2006, p. 147). Section 107 of the Copyright Act (Title 17, U.S. Code) outlines these provisions. Fair use includes "criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research" (Copyright.gov). Section 107 sets four factors in determining whether or not a particular use is considered fair (Copyright.gov, 2006). The distinction between fair use and infringement may be unclear and not easily defined, because the specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission is not explicitly stated. However, in all cases, quotation and proper citation MUST BE USED when engaging in fair use of the original author's material! Resources: Copyright. (2006). U.S. copyright office.

    Only very short excerpts (placed in "quotations") can be quoted from other websites or news articles, with acknowledgment "EXCERPT" and a link back to the source. DO NOT QUOTE whole sections of any article unless you have their expressed written consent! A copy of your written Consent, should also be included when posting a full news article.

    Here is what the law says, and is subject to change.

    There is also a huge fine for anyone caught breaking this law. You can read more about this here:
