Fair Use FAIL

May 27, 2011

I stumbled across this, while trying to tell a friend about an interesting paper.
I tried to copy and paste the bibliographic reference, and was rewarded with this:

FairUseFail

Copyright does not give the author the unilateral right to dictate terms of “fair use” (which this clearly is).

Fortunately, if you use Skim.app instead, your fair use rights are restored.

And it ought to go without saying, but I avoid Adobe Reader like the plague.
