Wiki Disclaimer

Post by Wayward Daughter on Wed 22 Feb 2012 - 20:07

I'm wondering now if we should honestly have a disclaimer on the wiki about copyright, given how we've taken abilities, characters and images from various films and TV programmes.

i cnt see we getting sued, although in an assembly, the teacher told us about how this guy got fined a crazy amount of money because he posted a link to a movie that had been uploaded online. He didn't even create the link or upload the video, just posted it.

I'm just thinking of being safe Wink Almost all youtube videos have one, so we could easily get the wording from there. And it wouldn't be suing I'd be worried over.

Laughing Rajan. The most technical disclaimers - which is what I'd use - are quoting a section of the Copyright Act which says copyright can be vetoed for "fair use", including personal entertainment uses, as long as you don't claim its your own original work or property. Using that wouldn't be copyright breach, it's quoting a part of the law.

Worrying about breaking the law, maybe? Like you mentioned, about that person being fined.

Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use I claim no ownership to the material used, and I do not make profits. I also claim no royalties to this media.

Using this as a base:
