The Copyright Act protects our intellectual property rights, but also makes clear our readers’ rights to make fair use of copyrighted content. The law allows people to quote a small amount of a copyrighted story so as to be able to comment on it, and even criticize it. The Tribune recognizes that such fair use is vital to free speech. In electronic formats, these small excerpts can include links to Tribune sites where the full content can be found.

But copyright law does not allow anyone to copy and display most or all of a story, photograph or graphic. To do so is a violation of our copyright and we will use all legal remedies available to address such infringements.

Again, we welcome a free and open discussion of our work in any venue or format, and we recognize that discussion can include excerpts of our content as long as it falls within fair use as defined by the Copyright Act. Your compliance will help The Tribune continue its long tradition as a provider of vital, independent information in Utah.
