Legal stuff

We remind readers that our content is protected by the federal Copyright Act and cannot be reproduced elsewhere without written permission.

The Copyright Act protects intellectual property rights — even for cartoons. It allows readers to make fair use of copyrighted content. Readers are allowed to quote a small amount of copyrighted material for comment, review or even criticism. These small excerpts can include links to the site where the full content can be viewed. However, copyright law does not allow anyone to copy and display most or all of a graphic without written permission. To do so is a violation of copyright. We’d rather not resort to legal means to address such infringements, but we will if necessary.

Thank you for honoring and complying with applicable copyright laws.
