Oh and Ashley Williams is super hot, too:

Tiffani Thiessen qualifies for this thread for another month or so. She turns 40 in January. She currently stars in White Collar:

Does that mean that in a month we have to get the mods to move this post to the other thread?

Because she hasn't been on in 2013 (which may make it not fit this thread) and I heard about it through other sources, so that's the rules of this forum. Some people may not want to know about an upcoming appearance until it happens.

Was it a big deal to click to see the spoiler?

Nope. Not a big deal. I was just curious. Thanks for the explanation.

So I just got a PM from the site owners saying that we are not to allow any images posted that might be copyrighted. They specifically pointed to threads like this one.

"It's been brought to my attention that we're seeing images that could be copyrighted being posted in the forums. This is explicitly banned in the terms and always has been, so we're not changing anything on anybody."

"If there is even a tiny doubt that the image might be copyrighted, the rule applies."

So I guess until I hear more, only post a pic if you took it yourself...

I think we're fine under the Fair Use doctrine. There's no commercial use here, the images are used for criticism/comment, and it would be tough for any of the copyright holders to argue that use of these photos on a registration-only interest bulletin board would have an affect on the market for the photos. After all, they're all freely available on any internet search engine (I am not saying that their availability on search engines affects their copyright status, because it does not, but it does make the possibility of seeking damages from this site ludicrous.)

What would be your analysis of the fact that while the use of the pictures here does not in and of itself constitute a commercial nature, the fact is that this site sells advertising and makes money off page views, and so the site probably makes more money when there is a thread like this that prompts lots of page views.

In other words, is it a valid application of the Fair Use Doctrine to post a picture for comment or criticism and then sell advertising on that same page, which is in effect using the copyrighted image (and the comments/critiques) to drive commercial traffic?

Standard disclaimer: I am a lawyer, but I'm not a copyright lawyer, nor do I play one on TV.

I think that's a good argument, but I'm not sure how close a call it is. I do know that in any close call, the tie goes to the public interest, and not the copyright holder (for better or worse). I would posit - and I would crunch the numbers, but there doesn't seem to be any way to easily aggregate this from our end - that even a thread with relatively high page views is dwarfed by the total amount of page views for the forum (or even the subforum), and further, that the vast majority of the page views come from a small subset of users, both of which would tend to vitiate (big lawyer word!) that argument.

I also think the usage here of the photos has absolutely no effect on the market for the images. For instance, for each photo that I've in-lined here, I've perused hundreds of images of that same actress, if not more. Most of these shots are red-carpet type, and they are just one of thousands of similar-type shots, which, again, shows what little market there is for an individual image.

There is probably a better argument for the more artsy shots like some of the Alison Brie ones from earlier.

Of course, there's an easy way around this entire argument: "Transformative Usage". Just use .gifs.

Actually that probably depends on whether he was taking them in the role of a private person (in which case yes, he'd automatically have copyright on them) or if he was taking them in the role of President of the United States, in which case probably not.


(cribbed from wikipedia) "a work prepared by an officer or employee of the" U.S. federal government "as part of that person's official duties" In general, under section 105 of the Copyright Act,[2] such works are not entitled to domestic copyright protection under U.S. law.

So an official Presidental selfie might be considered part of his official duties and therefore inelegible for copyright protection.

Aren't the majority of these photos links? Is that an implied citation to the owner?

Does google license all the photos it retrieves when searching for hawt actresses in their 30's?

They're mostly hotlinked to the place they are originally found. Sometimes, if that site doesn't allow hotlinking, then you have to copy the picture and rehost it somewhere. Either of those options probably constitutes a violation of the copyright, if it weren't for the Fair Use exception that DPR quoted, which likely makes our use of these pictures permissible, as they're not being used for commercial purposes, but instead are posted for comment/criticism.
