'Fair Use' Revisited

A while back I was accosted by a couple of self-righteous but, in my view, wholly ill-informed critics about my use of images on this blog. Among my replies to them this one is most relevant. In any case, this article from The New York Times is relevant to the discussion too. The basic point? The terrain is treacherous and ill-defined. Be responsive to complaints of copyright holders if they level them. And ignore folks who are too self-certain and dogmatic. My own views and more links appear toward the bottom of the sidebar.
