The 1961 Report of the Register of Copyrights on the General Revision of the U.S. Copyright Law cites examples of activities that courts have regarded as fair use: “quotation of excerpts in a review or criticism for purposes of illustration or comment; quotation of short passages in a scholarly or technical work, for illustration or clarification of the author’s observations; use in a parody of some of the content of the work parodied; summary of an address or article, with brief quotations, in a news report; reproduction by a library of a portion of a work to replace part of a damaged copy; reproduction by a teacher or student of a small part of a work to illustrate a lesson; reproduction of a work in legislative or judicial proceedings or reports; incidental and fortuitous reproduction, in a newsreel or broadcast, of a work located in the scene of an event being reported.”
Copyright protects the particular way an author has expressed himself; it does not extend to any ideas, systems, or factual information conveyed in the work.
Having given this some thought, I don't want the admins to act at this time and I ask that the post stay up as an example of what not to do.
But I wanted to acknowledge the theft so if it continues I have something actionable to work with.
It is what it is, the work of someone with no respect for the content of others regardless of how they feel about it.

ePlaya Forum Index -> ePlaya :: Burning Man for the other 51 weeks -> Preparation -> Q & A, Tips and Tricks -> Geodesic Dome Construction (Tips and Tricks)

You know, the introduce yourself one and the frequently asked questions. Thanks much!

One of the things that was discussed in creating the new Layout/Structure was the idea of a Sticky Intro or FAQ thread [i]for each major area[i] that would outline what that category was about. So I am not sure about the other one, but one of those could be merged or moved.
Please tell me if I am getting you wrong, but do you mean something more general for the Greeters' Station? Like a sticky FAQ for the entire site?

considering it's a cross post and probably in the wrong forum (open discussion). It's the Pay pal south africa thread. Thanks!
Yeah, I PM'd them on that, told them about crossposting but I would not delete it unless someone said something. Guess I will now.
i usually try to choose the one without any responses...
