Use of Copyrighted Materials on DCP

Recommended Posts

As has been said multiple times in this thread, no. Using a small part of something else as a quote, as long as it also has an attribution (i.e., a link to the source), is fine under the definition of fair use.

it's not all that hard to do either.

WOW!!!! That is very interesting. So actually quoting a post in here would be an infringement ?

That was my thoughts also since they would have to PM the poster to get permission to quote them. In theory copyright laws are good, in practicality, they are a mess because what percent of a quote would be considered acceptable for use?

BTW, can I quote you Jim?? :P

Feel free to do so. :)

i would assume that the use of the quote feature, which attributes the originator of the written material and includes a link back to where the post was originally found (that little red triangle is a hot link that takes you directly to the post), it's safe.

seriously, guys. it's not that hard. i've taught elementary age kids who would hear the directions "quote only a small phrase and then include the link" that wouldn't have any questions about that, because it's fairly simple.

"This is so simple a 5 year old child could understand it"

(pause 2 seconds)

"Go get me a 5 year old child, I can't make heads or tails out of it".

I love Groucho. What a quick wit. I did not say twit. Just to let people know. My favorite was Horse Feathers. :)
