Copyright, Links, Fair Use & Reproduction

I get requests from publishers to link to, and/or reproduce, content here all the time.

Copyright law is pretty clear as to what is legal: Anyone can link to any content on the internet, including "deep links." It is considered "Fair Use" to reproduce a paragraph or two — a small proportion of the total article — in another work. Reproducing the entire work without the Author’s permission is not allowed. 

Now you know . . .

    It is quiet tempting to wish to retain the whole content of blogs as opposed to part, as the effect is quiet surrealistic and cheering in its essence.
