An original purpose of the Internet was to allow
information to be freely accessible to the general public. As an educational
web resource created to provide information and resources on grief and
loss, and as a research tool for evaluating the effects of a website on
web-education, the Journey of Hearts website is following the principle
of "Fair Use" for the use of quotations, excerpts from stories, articles,
poems and lyrics.
The "fair use" of a copyrighted work, including
use for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching,
scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. Copyright
owners are, by law, deemed to consent to fair use of their works by others.
We considered the four factors when determining whether
our use of information on the Journey of Hearts site is fair: the purpose and character of the use, the nature of the
copyrighted work, the amount and substantiality of the copyrighted work
used, and the effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value
of, the copyrighted work.
Use of "Author Unknown" or Anonymous"
Some of the inspirational resources and quotes
on the Internet or in print are published without an author or as anonymous.
We have and will be carefully assessing on a resource by resource basis
the value of materials that is sent to us to include on the site.
Before including information on the Journey of
Hearts site, we search for the origins of the resource and identify the
original author and atrtribute appropriately. When we are unable to find
an author, especially when the material is determined to be particularly
useful for visitors to this site, then "author unknown" or "anonymous"
is used. We do not claim any copyright for stories or poems or any
other written works on this site that we have not written.
