Are you a blogger that is confused on the fair use rights? Fasturtle® wants to make sure that we are blogging within our fair use rights, and we want to help you make sure that you are as well. I read an article in WebProNews that helped me understand the fair use rights. I want to make sure “Turtle Nation” knows the guidelines and rules as well. This website has really good information.
When blogging, we like to use other people’s work to help justify or explain our point, which is fine, as long as we give credit where credit is due! We as bloggers have the right to quote in context, and to say ‘The Arizona Republic said this.’ Another way of making sure that you give credit where credit is due, is by adding a link to the site that your reader can read the article or story themselves.
So next time you want to quote someone else’s thoughts or ideas, make sure you are staying within your fair use rights!
