    I have a question please. One of my copyrighted images was scanned from a postcard and posted to an on-line site who improperly gave photo attribution to someone else. The image was on-line for 12 years before I became aware of it. During the interim, another company copied and pasted my image (which was published world-wide) and began using it on their letterhead, fundraising materials, soliciting corporate sponsorships etc. I gave the second company a bill and they did not pay so I sued them in Federal Court. I have since sent the first company a bill also. They retained an attorney who asserts they owe nothing and claim “fair use.” The back of my postcard clearly stated my copyright and also said, “All Rights Reserved,” when I published it. Would you explain “fair use,” and how they can possibly assert they believe they have a right to use it ? Thank you!!!

      Based only on your post, I don’t see a “fair use” argument.

      I can’t possibly explain the concept and nuances of the concept of “fair use” within the confines of a post. It is discussed in detail in our book “The Copyright Zone” (Focal Press) Amazon, B&N etc. and in several of our posts at thecopyrightzone.com. We cover it in ever lecture and most of our webinars.
