  • Images used are low resolution and cannot result in a reproduction of any reasonable counterfeit quality, essentially we use images that are just high enough resolution to accompany the learning resources or commentary
  • Generally, the entire image is used because without the entire image it would not be recognizable by visitors
  • The image is used for identification in the context of critical commentary and teaching tools. The image makes significant contribution to the visitors understanding of the article or topic, which could not be conveyed by a textual description of any reasonable length
  • Use for this purpose does not compete with the purposes of the original artwork, namely the creator providing graphic design or photography services
  • The images are not replaceable by any free content since other image that shows the same artwork or poster would also be copyrighted, and any version that is not true to the original would be inadequate for identification or commentary
  • Our servers are in the United States
  • Cybersickness.info does not sell any products or generate any revenue
