- avoiding any extensive copying of others' text that might go beyond [fair use] (e.g. by copying more than, say, 200 words, or by not providing a link to the original source — if online — or citation reference);
- in general, providing links to online material that is already in the public domain, rather than copying it; but
- not providing any links to photographs or sound recordings that infringe copyright.
Any material that goes against these guidelines will be removed.
The issue of the copyright in the full lyrics of the 69 love songs is a difficult area. These lyrics are all ©1999 Stephin Merritt. Nevertheless the full lyrics of many of the songs are available across several sites on the web, which puts them more or less in the public domain. This site will not reproduce full song lyrics but does provide links to other sites that publish these lyrics. This may be reviewed if there are complaints.
