Our Terms of Service

Welcome to The World of Jack London website! This site is intended for your personal entertainment, information, and education. Please feel free to browse the Site; however, your access and use of the Site is subject to the following terms of service:

We have developed these Terms of Service to govern your use of The World of Jack London. Your use of our site tells us you have read and agreed to these Terms of Service. Please read them carefully. This Terms of Service is a binding contract regarding your use of The World of Jack London. If you do not agree with any of these terms, please exit The World of Jack London.

All materials contained on this site are protected by United States copyright law and may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, displayed, published or broadcast without prior written permission. You may not alter or remove any trademark, copyright or other notice from copies of the content.

PLAGIARISM may be the sincerest form of flattery, but it is also illegal. Copyright law is just as applicable on the Internet as offline, no matter what you might see on other sites or read about on Usenet. Any work that is published in a book, magazine, newspaper, or even elsewhere on the Internet is most likely copyrighted.

Graphic images, songs, and video clips are also normally copyrighted. Be careful about "borrowing" copyrighted material for your website. Not only do you risk your reputation, but you risk serious legal repercussions.

This doesn't necessarily mean that you cannot use copyrighted work, however. If you are quoting a few lines from an article for example, and cite the original copyright of the author and publisher, you are making "fair use" of the material, which is permitted by law. However, "fair use" is hard to quantify — this is the subject of litigation all the time. There is no existing standard as to what constitutes fair use. It's a combination of factors, determined on a case-by-case basis. The trick is in using just enough material to get your point across without re-purposing entire passages of the work. Bottom line — it is better and safer to get written permission from the author or publisher.
