What Is Fair Use? A Basic Explanation For Aspiring Creatives [MakeUseOf Explains]

Half of the videos I find on YouTube always have some note in the description about how it’s totally legal for the creator to use songs from their favorite band as background music. Their reasoning tends to always be in the form of two words: fair use. Unfortunately, this is often because of complete ignorance. Other times its just a total disregard for the law.

How To Respond To Content Thieves With a DMCA Takedown Notice

If you have ever had a piece of work stolen and published elsewhere online, you know that it can feel pretty hopeless. Nasty content thieves just don’t seem to care how they acquire anything, and their plagiarism occasionally rewards them with sweet advert revenue. Don’t despair, though, for there is hope, and it comes in the form of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

Recognizing Danger: 5 Warning Signs Showing Your Mac Has A Problem

It’s safe to say that the Apple Macintosh computer is a great piece of hardware with a fantastic operating system, but it’s definitely not impervious to errors. Sometimes it acts funny, and because continuing on with our day is more important than actually getting something fixed, we’ll ignore it. After all, it’s a Mac, right? It’s invincible!

Strategize Using Simplicity With Tower Defense: Lost Earth [iPhone]

I enjoy strategy games for the very same reason that I enjoy sabotaging high profile companies – you set up a few patsies to do your bidding, hike away to a safe distance, and watch all of the action happen without having to lift another finger.

10 Email Tips For Dealing With Angry, Trollish, Or Rude Emails

It’s incredibly frustrating to check your email inbox only to find a completely hateful message. Why in the world do people act like this? With that said, you should learn how to defend yourself while on the web. Let me tell you this though: being a jerk isn’t a way to do it.

Netflix For iPhone: One Of The Best Apps For Movies & Shows On The Go [iPhone]

Having movies and television shows on your iPhone isn’t anything new, but with Netflix, it’s a whole lot easier.
