Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered fair, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Section 107 also sets out four factors to be considered in determining whether or not a particular use is fair:
- The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
- The nature of the copyrighted work
- The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
- The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work
The distinction between fair use and infringement may be unclear and not easily defined. There is no specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission. Acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material does not substitute for obtaining permission.
Cuntcast is a NON PROFIT podcast (if anything the hosts lose money) that aims to EDUCATE people on badass bands and help people RESEARCH badass bands by playing a small number of songs at low quality in between host chatter. The hosts do NOT intend copy right infringement. We are merely trying to promote the music we like. All of our episodes are encoded at low bit rates, either 128kbps or 96kbps. If you own ANY material played on Cuntcast and would like it removed, simply send an email with Cuntcast in the title to "firstname.lastname@example.org".
