Fair Use

I started this blog to serve as a helpful resource for all of my fellow cam models. Every time I learn how to do something new in css/html, put together a layout/template, or find some other piece of useful information; I will post it here to share with everyone for FREE!

I've learned how css and html codes work thanks in part to some awesome websites such as:
http://www.w3schools.com/ and http://www.css3maker.com/

I've also learned a great deal by just playing around with source codes and experimenting with all of the different ways I can change the look and functions. If I see a function on another profile that I like, I'll view the source code to see how it works.

Most creative work is not produced by one great single mind but a lot of people. We are constantly influenced by many ideas from society. If you like a particular font or function on some one's page, why shouldn't you be able to have something similar on yours too? I don't see a problem with it as long as you customize it enough to be distinctly yours.

Just about any code you see most likely came from some other source in the first place, so in a sense we've all borrowed, exchanged, intermixed and added our own flavor to chunks of code to make it our own.

Those that would argue this are probably under the impression they have created something that has never been done before, and are most likely to jump in here and cry copyright. But the truth is, any chunk of html or CSS you copy from a site is likely to be out there in duplicate thousands of times.

The Copyright Act gives copyright holders the exclusive right to reproduce works for a limited time period. Fair use is a limitation on this right. Fair use allows people other than the copyright owner to copy part or, in some circumstances, all of a copyrighted work, even where the copyright holder has not given permission or objects.

Everything I posted here is protected by fair use because it is posted for educational purposes and not for profit.
