FAIR USE DISCLAIMER
I write & share free articles (blogposts) on this Site, that aim to bring to the reader’s awareness, the beauty, joy and wonder found in the natural world, the rewards of paying attention to it and the issues of its conservation.
In some blogposts I share short, limited excerpts of well-known poems and/or passages from books by other authors – in an effort to put this material in the unique context of my original views in the articles and express my interpretations/comments on the same, while connecting the interested readers to some great authors, high quality literary material and books.
In some instances the excerpted/quoted material is in public domain. In the instances where the material is copyrighted, its use may not have been specifically authorized by the copyright owners. Such copyrighted material have been credited to the authors and/or copyright owners (to the best of my knowledge and research efforts), and links are provided for the original sources and/or the books.
All excerpts of copyrighted material are shared on this Site for free, for educational, information or commenting purposes, with good intentions, and, remain the property of their respective owners.
It is believed that this constitutes a ‘fair use’ of any such copyrighted material.
However, I am not a legal expert, therefore, if you are the legal representative of such material who finds a wrong use, an inaccurate or misleading credit/information, and/or wants the copyrighted material to be removed from this Site, get in touch, this will be done immediately (Pineconedream reserves the right to verify whether the person submitting that demand is authorized to do so or not.)
All photos that haven’t been taken by me and/or don’t have the Site’s watermarks, have either been sourced from free stock photo websites, credited and linked back to their original sources, or believed to be public domain.
If you wish to use copyrighted material from this Site for purposes of your own that go beyond ‘fair use’, kindly obtain permission from the copyright owner.
There is no advertising on Pineconedream, and therefore most of the standard privacy issues common on the Internet are not applicable here.
