So I got a comment earlier today:
Whose copyright did I steal? Yours? Can I see the certificate? Mr. Dog ever hear of “Fair Use”? Ye GODS, he’s an angry little nebbish, ain’t he just?
Now, this comment came from a server in San Francisco, and we all know very well that our DUMBFUCK is no coward to hide behind TOR like a weeping monkey vulva full of sand. On the other hand, that writing style SURE IS FAMILIAR, AIN’T IT?? Making demands? Check! Mentioning Fair Use? Double Check! Still sounds like a lithping eight year old girl with a new thethauruth? Oh, yes indeed it does. Plus, it misspelled deepbraianradio in the email address.
So on balance, I’m gonna say…yep! DUMBFUCK.
We all know that DUMBFUCK is ESPECIALLY FUCKING DUMB when it comes to copyright and Fair Use. What it thinks is Fair Use get many of its books taken down from online booksellers with astonishing regularity. And what it thinks is not Fair Use still sits right here on this blog, despite its great many attempts to get material taken down.
But I thought this an appropriate moment to provide an example of a transformative Fair Use on a copyrighted image. I even put a little bar over the eyes so you can’t identify the person in the picture, because I’m appropriate like that.
In the interest of protecting the more sensitive souls who visit from getting a fresh case of butthurt, I’m putting it below the jump. So don’t blame me if you lack the impulse control not to click and see and set your ass aflame.
