Fair Use

 
In as much as this is a blog/news/action site, all written material posted on this blog/site is for news, educational purposes, not for profit and I always include links to the original source. Further to this point, my reposting in no way diminishes the value of the original post and I argue for a value-added concept.

Links and traffic on the Internet are commodities. I include enough of the original post to peak the readers interest and encourage them to visit the site to read the rest. The amount of the original post included varies and I always look for the point that might motivate the reader to want more. As my site gains readers, so does the original posters.

Within the posts, any graphics included are part of the original post or included by me from images made available as Public Domain by various organizations including NASA, Wikipedia and others. Please see below for specific graphic licenses.

  The only time I request permission to repost is when I’d like to bring the entire post in-house for further discussions. The post title within the body of the post will always be linked back to the source. In these instances, I will note this was posted in entirety by permission. Please visit the blogs of all the authors to read more from their perspectives. I do not repost from sites that specifically say not to and certain ones do exactly that.

  As I indicate in my About Page, I am a private concerned citizen who is alarmed at what I discovered about the nuclear power industry as a direct result of the Japanese disaster. I am 100% motivated to helping by creating a clearinghouse of action items to save our planet.

FAIR USE NOTICE

 (from) http://www.sott.net/ and equally applies here

This site contains copyrighted material, the use of which has not always been specifically authorized by the copyright owner. We are making such material available in our efforts to advance understanding of environmental, political, human rights, economic, scientific, and social justice issues etc.

US LAW

We believe that our use of any such copyrighted material constitutes a ‘fair use’ as provided for in section 107 of the US Copyright Law. In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. Section 107, the material on this site is distributed without profit to those who have expressed a prior interest in receiving the included information for research and educational purposes. For more information go to: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/17/107.shtml.

EU LAW

As regards the use of copyrighted material within the European Union. The European Directive 2001/29/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 May 2001 on the harmonisation of certain aspects of copyright and related rights in the information society provides in its art. 5 an exhaustive list of exemptions that can be implemented by the Member States.

Amongst that list, the exemption(s) invoked must cover the reproduction and communication to the public (since the publication on the Internet implies those two acts). Generally, exemptions will be based on the purpose of the intended use. For instance, the Directive provides for an exemption to the exclusive right of reproduction and communication to the public when it is made for the sole purpose of illustration for teaching or scientific research, as long as the source, including the author’s name, is indicated, unless this turns out to be impossible and to the extent justified by the non-commercial purpose to be achieved.

Another exemption is “reproduction by the press, communication to the public or making available of published articles on current economic, political or religious topics or of broadcast works or other subject-matter of the same character, in cases where such use is not expressly reserved, and as long as the source, including the author’s name, is indicated, or use of works or other subject-matter in connection with the reporting of current events, to the extent justified by the informatory purpose and as long as the source, including the author’s name, is indicated, unless this turns out to be impossible”.

All the exceptions must comply with the three step test which imply that exemptions must only apply in certain special cases (1) which do not conflict with a normal exploitation of the work or other subject-matter (2) and do not unreasonably prejudice the legitimate interests of the rightholder (3).

If you wish to use copyrighted material from this site for purposes of your own that go beyond ‘fair use’, you must obtain permission from the copyright owner.
