Hey, thanks! The comments on the draft site really helped in the revision process.

Babies are rating you, too; they just wait until early adolescence to tell you.

Replying to @wynkenhimself

It could be. Fair use is not just about excerpt %, but also about market effect and transformative use… +

Fri Apr 20 16:04:06 +0000 2012

Replying to @wynkenhimself

If the excerpt is posted in order to be discussed/explicated/commented upon, that counts as transformative.

Fri Apr 20 16:04:46 +0000 2012

Replying to @wynkenhimself

Transformative is good. It's why quotations in criticism are de facto fair use; they're always included to be commented upon.

Fri Apr 20 16:07:06 +0000 2012

Replying to @wynkenhimself

Hmmm. I take it that it's not available to be linked to?

Fri Apr 20 16:07:52 +0000 2012

Replying to @wynkenhimself

Sigh. I think there's a potential fair use claim in that the excerpt won't affect the market value of the collection. +

Fri Apr 20 16:10:15 +0000 2012

Replying to @wynkenhimself

The key thing tho is that fair use is fuzzy, and only a defensive claim rather than a right per se.

Fri Apr 20 16:11:02 +0000 2012

Replying to @wynkenhimself

So it's always a judgment call. Likely the worst that would happen would be a takedown request.
