About Fair Use Practice

I believe my use of third party copyrighted material on this site falls within fair use / fair dealing practice since any use is subject to at least one of the following criteria:

  • it will not cause excessive economic harm to the copyright owner

  • there is sufficient acknowledgement of the author and their work

  • it is for purposes of reporting criticism, commentary and discussion

  • its use is transformative

  • it is used for the purpose of parody, caricature or pastiche.

That said, I always try and contact the copyright holders for approval, and have a policy of removing anything if requested.

So if you see used with permission in any of my credit lines - it’s because I asked and got the okay.

We’re a nice bunch, really.
