FREE AT LAST! Yet another Ivynsteez Media full length video. Its been a hell of a ride as far as skateboarding and uploading skate videos are concerned, but a great ride nonetheless. Its been a long road and alot of us are getting older and older as we keep traveling and I believe I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this is going to be me (ivyn) and lionel's last part we ever throw out. Sure we'll do clips here and there but the main reason for this is to pass on the torch to the younger generations. These kids nowadays with the skate park we helped create for them are getting better and better and yes I did call it. I said before this park opened up that it would produce some really good skateboarders and help them progress at a rate that we couldn't back in the day. We had no parks when we were younger nor did we have older people to take us on rides to go to spot to spot. we had to find shit on our own or build them ourselves. But yes, this is it for us. This was by far one of the best video's i had ever made as a whole and had the pleasure of working with some really good people and creating this masterpiece i call FREE AT LAST. Love it or hate it your opinion is your opinion I for one think that this is great along with the cast and it will remain on the internet for as long as the internet lives (most likely longer than me). Remember to have fun and to always strive for the best.
ALSO THIS IS ENTIRELY A NON PROFIT PROJECT.
Fair use is a US legal doctrine that permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders. It is similar to the fair dealing doctrines used in some countries outside the United States. While according to the Supreme Court fair use is an affirmative defense, in Lenz v. Universal Music Corp., (the "dancing baby" case), the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit concluded that fair use was not merely a defense to an infringement claim, but was an expressly authorized right, and an exception to the exclusive rights granted to the author of a creative work by copyright law. "Fair use is therefore distinct from affirmative defenses where a use infringes a copyright, but there is no liability due to a valid excuse, e.g., misuse of a copyright." Examples of fair use in United States copyright law include commentary, search engines, criticism, parody, news reporting, research, and scholarship. Although related, the limitations and exceptions to copyright for teaching and library archiving in the U.S. are located in a different section of the statute. Fair use provides for the legal, unlicensed citation or incorporation of copyrighted material in another author's work under a four-factor balancing test.
The term "fair use" originated in the United States. A similar-sounding principle, fair dealing, exists in some other common law jurisdictions but in fact it is more similar in principle to the enumerated exceptions found under civil law systems. Civil law jurisdictions have other limitations and exceptions to copyright.
Fair use is one of the traditional safety valves intended to balance the interests of copyright holders with the public interest in the wider distribution and use of creative works by allowing certain limited uses that might otherwise be considered infringement.
