Quotes from James Wesley Rawles Source Material

As James Wesley Rawles over at his SurvivalBlog.com has suggested 800 words seems to be a reasonable and commonplace except/quoting amount for Fair Use.

“SurvivalBlog is All Free, But Copyrighted”

“The content of this blog site is free to access, but copyrighted. Permission to use up to 800-word excerpts is summarily granted (no need to e-mail me for permission), but only if you include full attribution–most notably a link to the www.SurvivalBlog.com URL.” <ref> 50 word quotation Fair Use source: http://www.survivalblog.com/provisos.html SurvivalBlog is All Free, But Copyrighted - Important Provisos accessed January 22, 2014</ref>

Try to err on the side of linking rather than quoting. Not only does this make the Wiki quicker to read, but it also keeps us well within the standards of “Fair Use” for quotations.

All articles that are quoted, re-posted or linked are done so with great discretion and out of genuine professional courtesy under the doctrine of Fair Use, with legal precedent dating to the Statute of Anne of 1709, and confirmed by the doctrine of “Fairness Abridgement” in Gyles v Wilcox (1740) and later codified under 17 U.S.C. § 107.
