Fair Use. Some thoughts

Since running a series of posts on fair use, I’ve changed my blogging style and rarely directly quote other sources now – and the blog is better for it.

Many blogs routinely quote multiple paragraphs from other sources. While this can make for a quick post, paraphrasing works better, because then what you say becomes your own words and your own thoughts. It makes for better writing and better blogging, with the added benefit that fair use is then no longer an issue.
