Fair Use Policy



Somewhere between an RIAA dystopia where no electronic device can exist that doesn't conform to the standards of those garbage-distribution conglomerates called "Hollywood" and "the music industry," and the situation prevailing some four and a half centuries ago, where Cervantes languished in debtors' prison while his immortal Don rode to the top of the European best-seller lists in pirate editions, is the right compromise point between copyright and fair use. I don't know where that point is. I don't know how it would be enforced. But I know what I want (and since it's my stuff...)

The material condition of the arts has NOT improved since then...cut me a break!
