'fair' enough already, right?
- Hi David B. ( and David L.)
<< you're not likely to get permission to put whole
Tolkien works on the web; >>
No, not -whole works-, brief quotes...but lets not get this started again, it
is all clear enough by now.(or at least it should be)
<<If you're seeking an answer to your question about what you can do, you've
gotten it many times over, >>
Yes, yes, it is true, I/we got a very complete set of answers, and yes, the
fair use margin is quite slender, much more so than I initially realized.
<<even when it's perfectly OK to use
something, permission will often be sought: >>
Yes, yes, understood, and accepted.
<<the web site you
refer to is entirely misleading in implying that it's OK for instructors to
give photocopies of entire articles to a whole class without permissions or
Did it say that? I thought it said rather clearly ' do not neglect to pay
No, wait!!! don't answer that....
And I was mostly just asking you what you thought of it. But I see your
point, 'tis a rather redundant query.
just want to have a conversation about copyright, I'm not sure if this is
the best place.>>
Well, I think it -was- a pretty good place, but yes, more than enough has
been said already. I did not wish to drag it out excessively like this, but
if I nevertheless have done so, mea culpa, and I am sorry if it appeared I
was disregarding, or willfully misunderstanding what you and others have
thoughtfully written. OK?
