Web Advertising and "Commercial Use"

There is a poorly-defined gray area where websites that run banner advertisements are concerned. Do these sites qualify as commercial? Some most likely do, others most likely don't, but how to accurately determine which sites are which is time consuming and probably not worth the effort. Therefore, reposting site content on an advertising-supported site is permitted and encouraged so long as the following conditions are met:

  • The content is posted in a portion of the site that is freely accessible to the general public, and
  • The material is attributed correctly as defined by the attribution portion of the Creative Commons License.

If this is done, please make a copy of the content and host it directly on the site -- especially if the content is one of my comics -- in order to minimize my bandwidth.

Excluded Content

This does not include any content contributed by a third party: for example, the comics contributed by other cartoonists are owned wholly by those contributors and are not covered under this license.

Any music or videos published on this site will be subject to the licenses of the party who originally published them. Original music or videos (i.e., created by me) will be published under the above license.

Third party media (images, movies, music, etc. that is provided by someone not directly affiliated with this site) may be covered under other licenses. Third party media licenses and attributions will be documented on this page.

Non-Profit Use of Content

The content on Eviscerati.Org may be used in not-for-profit publications. If you wish to use any content for commercial purposes, or if you're not sure whether your situation qualifies as commercial, contact me.
