Copyright and Licensing for this Site

Unless stated otherwise, everything on this site is my intellectual property. Likewise, unless stated otherwise, all photographs are copyrighted by me. Don’t steal things; it’s not nice, and it really is actually illegal. However, I am partial to academic exchange and intellectual freedom, and I want my research and work to be useful to people, so I use a Creative Commons license for my work. My 3.0 license allows you to use my work, provided you attribute it to me, only use it for non-commercial use, and that any use you make of it is likewise offered under a similar license.

The latter link, yes, brings us here. If you wish to use any of my content in a way not allowed by my Creative Commons license, please contact me directly and we can discuss it. As a general rule, my philosophy is that if someone is making money off of something I’ve done, I should probably be getting something out of it, and whether money is being made or not, if I’ve worked on something, I should be getting credit. You do not need permission to quote brief passages of text (as you would in an academic paper), or to link to this site; feel free to do either one. I consider Pinterest to be an example of fair use, especially when used as a research tool, so please feel free to pin my images to your heart’s content. If you have any questions or requests, please send me a message: ava dot trimble at g mail dot com.
