Marc Washington, from Budapest via Philadelphia and New York

Postby PaulMarcW » Tue Jul 01, 2008 11:44 am

Hello All:

Please allow me to introduce myself. In the Old World / Ainu thread, Ishtar said, "I think it would be a good start if you could come on to the Guest Book section and properly introduce yourself."

I'm Marc Washington, born in Liberia of Episcopal Church missionary parents from the states. After too many bouts with malaria, we returned to Philadelphia when I was five. Having lived in New York for ten years, and after meeting my Hungarian wife-to-be, moved to Budapest for a six-month visit that has extended to well over a decade.

Our meeting was charming as though I am Afro-American she said it was not until after we had been together for three days that she realized that I was black. She was oblivious to the color in me. We adopted two girls here.

At one point, I became interested in understanding how we got here and started writing a book called the First Three Seconds back in the early 90s. The link is below.

http://www.mightymall.com/1st3seconds/index.html

A number of major publishers were interested in it but I never felt the work was complete and it evolved into THE SECOND BOOK OF GENESIS - THE UNIVERSE AS A SCIENTIFIC PROJECT. Starting with the big bang, it, shadowed the Book of Genesis beginning with the Word (okay. my adaptation); followed by the creation of the heavens, the earth, life, the human being, language, and civilization. Somehow there'd be a chapter or so for each and a number of international scientists found favor with the early manuscript. Here are some of their comments:

From the above comments you can predict, knowing that the work is the Second Book of Genesis (surely a poor and unworthy job), that the next phase is the emergence of man, language, and civilization. That is where I am now.

I doubt the project will ever finish. No book will ever be written as there are just too many loose ends for me to bind everything neatly between two covers. Always questions to pursue and ideas to get down. Never time to sum it all up. And that's okay.

So, in the end, this work and these endeavors of mine are just one big, exciting hobby to me.

Nothing much more to say.

Cordially yours,
Marc Washington

Welcome to the board, Paul Marc.

You certainly have some interesting ideas, many of which we regularly discuss on this board.

I read all sacred texts as if they are mostly mythology, rather than literally true, but there's a wide range of views on this board and so I'm sure you'll enjoy posting here.... if that's your intention.

But I'm still curious as to why you're marring photos with copyright notices that aren't your own, and are already freely available in the public domain - i.e. Google images. You haven't really answered my question on that... or whether or not you're really just using us as a ready made market research group....which I guess is legitimate, but a level of transparency would be helpful as speaking for myself, I can happily talk for hours and hours to a fellow enthusiast and honest seeker, but am less likely to want to do so with someone whose only aim is to get stuff out of me and then slap their own copyright notices all over it.

Someone has PM-ed me to say that they think what Marc means is that he is marring the photos pending his own application for permission to use them. This, however, is not how it reads – and if this is the case, it’s a mis communication from which I and others have made the wrong inference.

Copyright on the internet is a murky area and tends to vary from country to country. In this case however, unless Marc expects to profit from his website, his use of the photos would probably come under Fair Use and Fair Dealing, and thus not require the owner’s permission.

Marc has told us that he is only an interested amateur, after all.

But in any case, he has no need to marr his photos. He only has to put “Copyright applied for” and everyone would know what it means. At the moment, it’s ambiguous. He also wouldn’t then be liable if someone did decide to download them and break the copyright.

Here’s Wiki’s take on it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright# ... ir_dealing

Fair use and fair dealing

Main articles: Fair use and Fair dealing

Copyright does not prohibit all copying or replication. In the United States, the fair use doctrine, codified by the Copyright Act of 1976 as 17 U.S.C. § 107, permits some copying and distribution without permission of the copyright holder or payment to same. The statute does not clearly define fair use, but instead gives four non-exclusive factors to consider in a fair use analysis. Those factors are:

1. the purpose and character of the use;
2. the nature of the copyrighted work;
3. the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
4. the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.[10]

In the United Kingdom and many other Commonwealth countries, a similar notion of fair dealing was established by the courts or through legislation. The concept is sometimes not well defined; however in Canada, private copying for personal use has been expressly permitted by statute since 1999. In Australia, the fair dealing exceptions under the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) are a limited set of circumstances under which copyrighted material can be legally copied or adapted without the copyright holder's consent. Fair dealing uses are research and study; review and critique; news reportage and the giving of professional advice (ie legal advice).
