OMG, how stupid! And I ain’t foolin’.
The other day my SciBling Shelley at Retrospectacle got nastygrammed by Wiley InterScience for reproducing part of a figure from a paper in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture! Shelley had provided due reference to where she had found the figure and used it to discuss the contents of that paper. Fair use.
Wiley InterScience describe themselves as “a leading international resource for quality content promoting discovery across the spectrum of scientific, technical, medical and professional endeavors”. Yeah, sure, and they apparently want to be the only such resource on the net. Good luck guys. I think you’d better read up on Fair Use.
