Here at Climbcore, no one is making money. Therefore, I’d just like to take a second to say that if you see a picture here you don’t want used, that’s your choice. Otherwise, I am using all photos here based on the fair use:
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 17 U.S.C.§ 106 and 17 U.S.C.§ 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:
- the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
- the nature of the copyrighted work;
- the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
- the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors
So, as I said, this isn’t to turn a profit and there is no effect on the potential market, and I’ve only used these pictures sparingly.
Again, feel free to send me a note if you think a photo is being used the wrong way.
