I believe personal use is always allowed.
Damn, I just changed my avatar from TB12 jersey to TB12's own logo. What kind of low life thuggery is this $hit ??
For now I wouldn't worry about anything except uploading game footage here, I don't want everyone worrying about their existing avatars with logos, etc. That's different and for now I'm leaving that alone and not worrying about it.
Otherwise, we're on to Washington
I started to follow the NFL and Star Trek at the same time.....how are they connected? About 15 years ago you found lots of ST sites with pictures/sound bites, then Paramount lawyers made them take them down, being hard ball on fair use. Interestingly, Star Trek has not done so well since. Is it because they suppressed their fandom or their creativity has waned? As it relates to the NFL, I see the fair use issue as a potential sign the NFL is obsessed with money and losing sight of fan sustainability.
Done. RIP, sig.
If you get sued just make sure it lands in front of Judge Berman and start your argument with "Well as you know Judge the NFL feels you have no authority over them........"
As a technological moron, does this mean I can or can't post YT clips? How about image URLs? If those are OK, what exactly can't I do?
No worries. You can link to whatever - just can't directly upload it onto our server.
Is that the "upload a file" comment option?
