Note: This post was slated for January 15 but was postponed for reasons you’ll quickly understand.
Fair Use Frivolity
What a difference a day makes. Yesterday I was contacting a copyright lawyer and feeling dark and dismal, today she’s straightened me out and I see blue skies. The concept of fair use includes my right to comment on an artist’s artwork and to use relevant images to illustrate my point. The smartphone-sized 72 dpi images that I use can’t harm the originator’s sales.
My heart sings. The big roadblock that I’ve felt has disappeared like a brick wall movie prop. POOF! I’m back in business!
The four-day postponement was so my new lawyer could read my text and correct mis-statements. Which she did.
