I make a concerted effort to respect the copyrights of artists and authors of all types of media. Wherever possible, I use my own artwork in posts to this blog. On occasion, I will elect to post images belonging to a third-party in order to make comments on how to use the images for teaching physics under Educational Fair Use guidelines. This page explains how I have come to the decision to post these select third-party images on this blog. If you are a content owner and feel that my use does NOT constitute fair use, please contact me directly: morrisATdrewsday.com.
All third-party images reproduced on this blog are shared under Educational Fair Use.
I believe the Internet is an unprecedented educational tool. This blog is a free educational resource created by a working physics teacher with the aim of sharing physics teaching techniques and ideas for other teachers to implement in their own classrooms..
All copyright of third-party content posted here for educational purposes belongs to its original owners.
Why I share images and references under Educational Fair Use:
The posts on this blog are legitimate academic work.
The material used is posted exclusively for commentary and criticism purposes . Furthermore, they are only posted when the content is essential to the topic. When making commentary of a work of visual art, I need to show what I am critiquing.
The work is being shown to be used in a new manner, for which the artist did not necessarily intend, therefore bringing new utility to the work. (I.e., using it in a physics classroom.)
The sources used are always cited with complete bibliographical information, including authors’ and publishers’ names, where known and available.
This blog is a non-profit educational resource.
The amount of copyrighted material used is never excessive and it never affects, in any way, the market value of the original.
