I put a lot of hard work into this site. Please
respect that, and don't steal my content!
This page is intended as an educational resource
for those interested in finding on-line information about the fairy
tale Beauty and the Beast. I believe that this site falls within the
Fair Use Provision of the Copyright Act, as stated below:
Fair Use Provision of the Copyright Act -
The Statutory Decree §107. Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair Use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair
use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies
or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for
purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including
multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not
an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made
of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered
shall include -
1.the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use
is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
2.the nature of the copyrighted work;
3.the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to
the copyrighted work as a whole; and
4.the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of
the copyrighted work.
I feel pretty safe in saying that this site is for
non-profit education purposes. I have used only limited numbers of images
in each section. My use of them is unlikely to have an effect upon the
"potential market for or value of the copyrighted work." This site is
also intended as both criticism, comment, and scholarship. Copyright
