CyberArchive Rules & Restrictions

1. Access to this Photography Criticism CyberArchive is restricted to individual subscribers and groups of users covered by an institutional subscription. Usage is tracked via login and password.Unauthorized usage will jeopardize the subscription of the person or institution whose entry codes are abused. It also constitutes a form of cybertheft. Violations will be reported to the individual or institutional subscriber for action on their part. Repeated infractions will result in summary cancellation of the CyberArchive subscription. We urge you to respect the rights of our subscribers, who include your professional colleagues, faculty, and fellow students, and also the rights of our authors.

2. Authorized users may enter the Photography Criticism CyberArchive at any time and as often as they want for the duration of their subscription.

3. Any and all texts in this Photography Criticism CyberArchive may be read by subscribers. They may be freely referred to or cited (exact bibliographic information appears at the bottom of each text). Short excerpts from them may be copied and pasted for quotation -- with appropriate attribution, per standard scholarly practice -- in research papers and other writings by our subscribers. Individual subscribers and authorized institutional users can print out a single copy for handwritten annotation, and can also print out a single copy for attachment to a term paper or other text as documentation of the reference. (We recommend that you review the "fair use" guidelines posted elsewhere in this Archive for a clearer idea of how much material you can legally quote from a given text. Note: the "fair use" exception to the copyright law does not apply to commercial usages. No commercial usages may be made of any of the copyrighted texts in the Photography Criticism CyberArchive.)

4. Entire texts from this Photography Criticism CyberArchive, or sections of such texts that exceed the "fair use" limitations, may not be printed out, photocopied, and/or otherwise reproduced for purposes of distribution, or published in any other form without the express written permission of the Photography Criticism CyberArchive and/or the copyright holder. Such unauthorized publication includes circulation of either the html version of a text or the text itself via email, intranet, or internet/world-wide web systems. Please read our CyberArchive copyright notice.

5. You and your students -- or any cluster of Photography Criticism CyberArchive subscribers -- can create a hypermedia/intranet project in which you link to one or more Archive texts. Please keep in mind, however, than only authorized CyberArchive subscribers will have the ability to access Photography Criticism CyberArchive material included in that project. If you want to license CyberArchive material for use outside the Archive or for access by non-subscribers, please contact us to arrange the necessary license for that usage.

6. If you wish to republish any material you find here in this Photography Criticism CyberArchive, rights for such usages are most likely available at reasonable cost. Please contact us for assistance in that regard.

7. This Photography Criticism CyberArchive is not in a position to either police our subscribers for plagiarism or to take legal action against any subscriber who seeks to pass off work by our authors as his or her own. However, plagiarism is a civil crime and a major breach of academic/scholarly integrity. We will therefore immediately suspend the Photography Criticism CyberArchive access rights of anyone accused of plagiarizing material posted herein until that case is resolved, and will cancel the subscription or individual access of anyone caught and convicted of plagiarizing our authors' material. For clarification of the regulations regarding plagiarism, please review the material on that subject elsewhere at this site, as well as the advisory of your own institution.
