Hawaii Newpaper Agency:

Wow. Someone from the Hawaii Newspaper Agency read my blog for over 10 minutes. Fourteen minutes and 19 seconds to be exact... using a Macintosh.

Note that my posts about articles as well as pics in their paper are protected by the Fair Use Act

Scope of exclusive rights in pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works

and under the Digital Millenium Act of 1998 Title IV for sound recordings (webcastings.)

More importantly my views are protected by the First Amendment.

I despise what this man is doing. Hawaiian or not. His words and actions

Senator Daniel Akaka:

Seen at http://www.akaka.senate.gov/

He is all smiles as he allows the U.S. government to define who we are and to tell us that we cannot sue. He will be cursed for selling our kupunas' bones. I know this because my kupuna speak to me. Remember what happened to Attorney Patrick W. Hanifin.

Smile you're on candid Internet camera, Sell Out. Which reminds me... I will write a book about all of our allies and enemies. However I am pretty sure that I have to self-publish because my opinion is an unpopular one so no publisher will want to publish it *LOL* But an honest voice is better than a sell-out one ;) Anyway I reserve the right to take any and all claims to court.

Edited partly because of this

Eh, not quite.

Your lj posts, given that they are "original works of authorship in a fixed and tangible medium of expression", were already covered by the section 102 of Copyright Act. The DMCA focuses more about setting up legal protocols on the web to handle copyright infrigements and defending against circumvention of copy protection, rather than expanding the scope of copyrightable content, vessel hull designs notwithstanding. Digital content has been protected by copyright since 1980, long before the DMCA was signed into law.

As for educational purposes, the DMCA doesn't say much about that- you're confusing it with section 107 of the copyright act, better known as Fair Use :)

The newspaper still owns the copyright to the articles and the images which you are infringing upon, but given the 4-part legal test for fair use, you're probably fine, unless your web traffic really is putting a dent into their ad revenue ;)

Re: hmm
You're right. I was very quick to post while the person(s) was reading my blog. I've since added

Fair Use
