Terms of Use

Copyright and Reproduction

Unless otherwise noted, the material contained within this site is copyrighted by Marty Priola and The Cormac McCarthy Society (hereinafter “the authors”). All rights reserved. Use of material contained within this site, including those uses which do not result in monetary gain, is prohibited without express written permission.

Notwithstanding the above, the authors recognize and acknowledge the fair use doctrine.

The Cormac McCarthy Society is a scholarly organization. The authors seek to promote the free exchange of ideas and information but expect that their particular expression of those ideas will be used sparingly and that credit will be given in such cases.

Generally speaking, the authors do not hold copyright in the images or photographs displayed on this site, which are reproduced here with the kind permission of their copyright holders. The authors do not have and cannot convey the right to further reproduction of these items.

(The authors are opposed to the notion, propounded by some, that each display of a page is a “performance” or “distribution” for purposes of copyright law. We view this site, wholly, as one instance of an integrated work, for which we have attained the necessary rights and permissions.)

Forum Usage

In no event shall the authors be held liable for any injury resulting from or arising out of a post on this site’s Forums. Such injuries include but are not limited to libel, defamation, or copyright infringement.

The authors specifically disclaim any responsibility for any injury which shall occur to any person or entity owing to posts on this Web site’s forums, whether that harm be directly or indirectly caused by the forums and/or their participants.

Posts on the forum are the property of the authors (that is, of Marty Priola and The Cormac McCarthy Society) and may be used as the authors see fit. This provision is not intended to claim copyright over materials not written or otherwise produced by the authors. Rather, this provision exists in the event that the authors wish to preserve the contents of the forums. The authors claim the reproduction rights to materials posted on the forums only insofar as such claim is necessary to carry out this archival purpose.

A person or entity posting on the forum warrants that he or she has the right to reproduce any materials posted therein, including but not limited to pull quotes, photographs, videos, and the like. Further, such persons or entities agree to indemnify and hold harmless the authors in the event of any claim arising from such posting activity. For this reason, a claim of fair use shall be defended by the person or entity who made the post in question and not by the authors (that is, by Marty Priola and The Cormac McCarthy Society).

By posting on the forums of this site, you acknowledge and accept these terms and conditions.
