Illustrations: For the purpose of this copyright statement, “illustrations” refers to the final result, displayed on this website, of a process of creatively compositing, cropping, manipulating, and otherwise altering found images.
Images: For the purpose of this copyright statement, “images” refers to digitized photographs, and other digital assets, which includes, without limitation, charts, graphs and text, found on the internet, and deployed creatively, using various techniques of manipulation, to create the illustrations for the articles found herein (slowpainful.com) and on its related properties (such as subdomains or other websites of which slowpainful.com / David Roddis is the owner).
This copyright statement relies on Canadian statute, namely, the
Copyright Act, R.S.C., 1985, c. C-42 (An Act respecting copyright) and specifically section 29, “Exceptions”:
“Fair dealing for the purpose of research, private study, education, parody or satire does not infringe copyright.”
Most of the digital illustrations on this site use images taken from the Internet.
These have been substantially altered and/or used only in part, in a way that comments on or parodies the original, essentially creating a new work, and in such a manner that the value of the original, if any, has not been affected. Without affecting the generality of the foregoing, this is relevant to the illustrations which have been used for commercial purposes, including merchandise using the illustration.
I believe this constitutes “fair dealing” as outlined in the Canadian Copyright Act. If any copyright holder feels otherwise, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance with proof of copyright status and your request will be reviewed within 48 hours.
