This forum is committed to respecting the copyrights of outside source material authors in forum posts. Fair use of copyright material generally means copying should be allowed for purpose of criticism, news reporting, teaching and scholarly research. This purpose is aligned with the purpose of the Topicalinfo forums. The policy of this forum is to comply with reasonable and fair use of outside copyrighted material.

The use of brief verbatim textual excerpts from copyrighted media, properly attributed or cited to its original source or author is normally acceptable under fair use. General rules of thumb are to copy no more than 20% or 300 words from a source, similar to the length of an abstract. Any copyright issue refers to using other's words rather than their ideas. You are encouraged to borrow any and all ideas from other sources to develop and discuss further in these forums.

Consider this test for fair use of copyrighted material at http://www.utsystem.edu/OGC/intellectualproperty/copypol2.htm#test Most of the concern for user posts in this forum will center around factor 3: How much of the work will you use? When copying material, just make an effort to take no more than is necessary to make your point.
