Spellbound by Movies is a labor of love for me. I write about films and their associated personalities because I enjoy this modern art form, and I want to promote it, to share my ideas, and to communicate with others who are as spellbound as I am.
While my blog has some monetizing elements by containing links to my Patreon page and an occasional affiliate link, my main compensations for blogging are the joy writing brings me, what I learn watching and reading about films, the friends I make. I note any posts resulting from press passes for screenings and comped books and discs.
On Spellbound by Movies, you will find film stills and other photographs, movie clips, and quotes. I believe their use is covered by Fair Use:
“Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for ‘fair use’ for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use.”
If any copyright holder feels I have violated Fair Use laws in using his or her materials, he or she should contact me. I will do my best to respond quickly and remove any rightfully contested content.
