Terms of Service

historical documents are excluded
from these Terms of Service

As a service to students and historians, I sometimes post copies of historical documents at my website. Most of these historical documents were created by employees of either the U.S. Government, the United Nations, or other governments. Examples of such historical documents include documents linked in my webpage on Syria: Other examples of such historical documents include meteorological surface pressure maps, with file names spmYYMMDDHH.gif and referenced in my essay, Interesting Surface Pressure Maps.

Other examples of such historical documents include judicial opinions, such as ricci.pdf and other documents in this case.

These historical documents have no copyright notice. Readers are free to print or copy these historical documents without paying any license fee to me. To be clear, my Terms of Service do not apply to such historical documents. I only assert copyright on text and photographs that I created.

In the following Terms of Service,

general remarks

Each of the essays and each of the photographs at this website that contains a copyright notice (e.g., "Copyright YYYY by Ronald B. Standler") is copyrighted by the author, Ronald B. Standler, who retains full and complete rights under the U.S. Copyright Laws and the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works. The copyright of each essay and each photograph at this website has been registered with the U.S. Government.

This website, www.www.groupjk.com , including each of my essays and each of my photographs, is my personal property.   Each of my essays at this website, and also each of my photographs at this website, is protected by copyright law, and also protected by these contractual terms of service.

These Terms of Service give the contractual terms of service for this website.   Your use of this website constitutes your acceptance of all of these terms of service, as well as your acceptance of my disclaimer.

Incidentally, these Terms of Service would be much simpler, except for (1) my benevolently granting permission for printing one copy of some of my essays under certain conditions and (2) my clarifications of misinterpretations of these terms of service by readers who are insistent that they are entitled to free use of my personal property.

terms of service

What you can legally do freely and without permission:
  1. Read any essay and view any photograph at www.www.groupjk.com/ on the screen of your computer.

  2. Put a link to any essay(s) at www.www.groupjk.com/ on your webpage(s).

  3. In addition, for any essay in either print-enabled PDF or HTML format, you may make one printed copy for either your educational use or your personal use, specifically:
    1. "educational use" is either: (i) use by a student in preparing an assignment for his/her class, or (ii) use by a professor in preparing lectures or performing scholarly research.
    2. "personal use" is for any purpose that is both noncommercial and nonincome-producing (i.e., related to neither your employment nor your profession).

    Printing of my essay(s) for any other purpose requires payment of a license fee to me.   Printing or distributing more than one copy of my essay(s) for any purpose — including for an educational or personal purpose — requires payment of a license fee to me.   Printing any print-disabled PDF file, for any purpose, requires payment of a license fee to me.

    To avoid misunderstanding, each essay at this website is available in only one of the following formats: (1) HTML or (2) Adobe PDF.   (Why I started using print-disabled PDF files.)

The following list specifically states prohibited and allowed acts:
  1. Do not display my essay(s), or any of my photograph(s), at either your website or any other website.   As a matter of copyright law, any unauthorized public display of a copy of my work is copyright infringement.   (If you want to refer to my essay, then provide a link to the URL of my essay.)

  2. Do not distribute one or more copies of any of my essays, or any of my photograph(s), in any format (e.g., paper copy, attachment to e-mail, floppy disk, compact disk, DVD, etc.).   As a matter of copyright law, any unauthorized copy of my work is copyright infringement.   (Instead, you may either (1) link to the URL of my essay, or (2) you can ask permission and pay me a license fee.)

  3. Do not download my entire essay and/or any of my photograph(s) to your media (e.g., hard disk drive, flash drive, floppy disk, compact disk, etc.), except for the temporary files in cache that are automatically created by your webbrowser or Adobe Acrobat Reader.

  4. You may quote or paraphrase words from any of my essays, but only if, on each occurrence of my words, you also provide a citation that includes all of the following:
    1. the true author's name (i.e., "Ronald B. Standler"),
    2. the title of my essay,
    3. the URL of my essay, and
    4. the date of the last revision of my essay.
    (The URL and date are found near the end of each of my essays.)   Using material without a proper citation is plagiarization.

  5. Do not quote or paraphrase in a book, article in a periodical, any other publication, term paper, or document posted on the Internet, a total of more than 500 words from my essays.   This contractual limitation determines any "fair use" that you may have under copyright law.

  6. Do not prepare a "derivative work", as that term is used in copyright law, from any of my essays. Examples of forbidden derivative works include any translation, abridgment, condensation, revision, or any new edition.   Including my name as the/an author does not make a derivative work acceptable, but does avoid a charge of plagiarization. As a matter of copyright law, making an unauthorized derivative work is copyright infringement.

  7. Do not state or imply that I have either approved, or recommended, specific product(s), service(s), or manufacturer(s).

Printing or Distributing My Essays

Before I grant permission to print or distribute one or more copies of any essay at this website (except one copy of an HTML file or one copy of a print-enabled PDF file, for either educational or personal use, as specified in §3 above), I require payment of a license fee for each printed copy.


The current licensing fee is US$ 4 per copy for my essays in HTML or print-enabled PDF where I own the copyright. Requests for permission should be sent by e-mail to this address.

Owing to violations of my copyrights and violations of these terms of service by professors and litigators — disrespect of my intellectual property — I no longer sell printed copies of my print-disabled PDF files.

Incidentally, if I had a contract, grant, or salaried job that paid me for my time to research, write, and revise essays, I would enable printing of those sponsored essays in PDF and not charge a license fee. If you know of a nonprofit corporation or foundation that would sponsor my work, I would appreciate your referral.

Links

You may link to my essays.   The table of contents of my HTML webpage gives internal anchors for links inside my HTML webpage.   I will make every reasonable effort to maintain stable links, by changing neither the domain name www.www.groupjk.com/ nor the file name of essays at this website.   Please do not link directly to my photograph(s), as I may delete an old photograph and insert a new photograph in my essay(s).

Acceptance

Your use of this website constitutes your acceptance of all of the above terms of service, as well as your acceptance of my disclaimer.


Thank you for respecting my copyrights.
