Quoting Material and Copyright Laws

isurvive's current policy:
Please keep copyright restrictions in mind when making any references to books, songs, articles, poetry or other pieces of material. Share only references or brief quotes that qualify under copyright and fair use laws. Limit your brief quotation to the minimum necessary to make your point and always include the full copyright references (author, title, publisher, year, page or artist, song, album, producer, year). This will also allow those interested to view an excerpt in its full copyrighted and protected context if they choose.
We have been further researching this area and it remains our understanding that quoting should be brief as to protect users and isurvive from breaching any copyright laws.
Please know that song lyrics are fully copyrighted material. You will find legal info and discussions about using lyrics both online and in print and they are protected in full (unless public domain) and many warnings can be found about using them (as well as ways to seek permission). Song titles are not protected and can be used.

We realise this may seem over cautious to some but please refer to the following suggestions when using copyrighted material in your posts.
The song Help! is really what I relate to right now. I'm feeling very alone and insecure. You can find it: Help! by the Beatles, Album: single/Help!, George Martin, 1965

The book, Courage to Heal has be very helpful to me. On page 173 the author shares about Resolution and Stabilizing in the healing process. I really like and can relate to this statement: "Authentic moving on is a natural result of going through each step of the healing process. It comes slowly and sometimes take you by suprise." The Courage to Heal (3rd Addition), Ellen Bass and Laura Davis, HarperCollins Publishers, 1994.

Guidelines Update Announcement - 6th December 2015

Post by Jonesy » Sun Dec 06, 2015 2:23 pm

Hi everyone

Following a discussion among the Board members, an addition has been made to our Guidelines and can be found on the first page;

"As an anonymous site our priority is to provide a safe forum – we have extremely limited ability to act in a meaningful way should we suspect that a minor may be in danger. Site leadership would attempt to do what they could within their limited means."
