Geni, I have to ask you to please stop opining on
matters outside your
Claiming fair use on a non copyright image strikes me as a tricky
concept and one that is rather pointless in any case. Fair use images
are copyvios. At best they are just copyvios that are allowed within
the US. They are still however copyvios. If they were not you would
not bother trying to claim fair use.
I think what Jimbo was referring to is the fact that fair use, under
US law, is *not* a violation of copyright.
Of course, speaking of talking out of your ass, according to Jimbo
"simply having an image on the website, not used in an article, does
not in any way justify fair use claims."
