What is Fair Use?

According to Copyright Alliance:

"Fair use permits a party to use a copyrighted work without the copyright owner's permission for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research."

BLEW makes use of copyrighted photographs, videos, and song lyrics, among other items, for the purposes of analysis, teaching, research, and enhancing the historical record with "outsider" historical information, as well as archiving historical information that is in danger of being lost. Copyrighted materials presented here are intended to be viewed in context with all other materials on the site to inform visitors of various truths that have been deliberately obscured by mainstream media interests who stand to gain more profit by suppressing said truths.

Copyright owners can contact BLEW's webmistress to request that lower quality or watermarked copies of photographs and videos be shared in place of HD versions. BLEW will also be happy to link to online shops, where viewers may purchase prints or other merchandise from copyright holders. Photographers may also request to place static banner ads for their artwork in BLEW's photo gallery, free of charge. Please get in touch: blew@rawk[nospam]anonaddy[fuckoffbots]com (replace the [] with .)

Song lyrics and non-fiction written works will be presented in their entirety alongside commentary and analysis from the webmistress, again, with the understanding that they are intended to be viewed in context with all other materials displayed on the website, with the purpose of illuminating hidden information.
