Content created by the author:
This blog and all content in it by Christopher T. Mason (“the author”) is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License.
I ask that you attribute me by linking to whatever the original blog post was, and it would be kind if you left a comment on the original post mentioning your derivative work or copy and where it can be found.
To be clear, you do not need to ask for my permission or approval to copy or create a derivative work, as I have already said yes; that is part of the point of CC.
The stories and information created by the author are sometimes factual, sometimes artistic works of fiction and falsehood. I reserve the right not to distinguish between the two. Only someone intentionally and maliciously disregarding the truth would take anything posted here as fact. (There lawyers, try a libel suit now.).
Content not created by the author:
- Content not created by the author will always be marked as such, usually as “Image Credit:” followed by the source of the image or media.
- The content of this blog is primarily criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and/or research (of varying levels of journalistic, scholarly, etc, quality).
- The content will always be at a decreased quality, in order to preserve the commercial value of the content’s creator.
- I derive no direct financial gain from this blog.
Based on the above and reviewing the relevant United States Copyright Office publication (retrieved 2 April, 2011), I believe that the use of a limited number of low-resolution copies for identification and critical commentary qualifies as fair use under United States copyright law.
