One of the rights accorded to the owner of copyright is the right to reproduce or to authorize others to reproduce the work in copies or phonorecords. This right is subject to certain limitations found in sections 107 through 118 of the copyright law (title 17, U. S. Code). One of the more important limitations is the doctrine of “fair use.” The doctrine of fair use has developed through a substantial number of court decisions over the years and has been codified in section 107 of the copyright law.
Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered fair, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Section 107 also sets out four factors to be considered in determining whether or not a particular use is fair:
The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
The nature of the copyrighted work
The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work
my edits are not an edit war if I am adding content to the artice, the one at fault for this edit war is Farix who keeps reverting to an old page without the new additions and he doesnt even write in the discussion. Mokaiba11 (talk) 21:16, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
An edit war is when two parties are continually reverting back and forth. Two parties. Either two people are edit warring, or no one is. You can't try to claim high ground and state "my edits are not an edit war, but HIS ARE!" -- it doesn't make sense. If Farix is edit warring against you, then you are warring against him by definition. Stop it, and wait for other editors to chime in. Jsharpminor (talk) 21:28, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
I've attempted to clean up the mess that Mokaiba made of the article and get it to conform with other article in the same subject area. However, it is Mokaiba who has been reverting every all of my attempts sight unseen and even requesting rollback privileges so that they can "revert faster". Mokaiba has show a blatant WP:OWNership over the article and has prevented other users from making changes to their edits. At no point did I actually revert Mokaiba. Instead, I've attempted to reformat the contents to match Wikipedia's standards and remove anything that was obviously original research, such as the over half dozen "genres" Mokaiba tried to add, extrusions plot detail, or just didn't belong, such as a non-English licensee in an English licensee field and two obsolete infobox fields. —Farix (t | c) 21:47, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
The article is full of material that is commented out and thus invisible to readers. Some of it has been this way for nearly 9 months. I can see from the talkpage that there has been a bit of argument over what should be removed and what should stay and I don't want to get into that, but commenting out large swaths of text for months-long periods is not an appropriate use of comments per WP:COMMENT. I'm moving the material here for the time being.
