ACM SIGGRAPH's DIGITAL ARTS COMMUNITY (DAC)
The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to ACM’s aims and goals. These require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group, that fosters dignity, understanding, and mutual respect, and that embraces diversity. For these reasons, ACM is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for participants at our events and in our programs.
Harassment is unwelcome or hostile behavior, including speech that intimidates, creates discomfort, or interferes with a person's participation or opportunity for participation, in a conference, event or program. Harassment in any form, including but not limited to harassment based on alienage or citizenship, age, color, creed, disability, marital status, military status, national origin, pregnancy, childbirth- and pregnancy-related medical conditions, race, religion, sex, gender, veteran status, or any other status protected by laws in which the conference or program is being held, will not be tolerated. Harassment includes the use of abusive or degrading language, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. A response that the participant was “just joking,” or “teasing,” or being “playful,” will not be accepted.
Individuals violating these standards may be sanctioned or excluded from further participation at the discretion of the organizers or responsible committee.
Please use the Above link to read the Full Fair Use policies Use of figures, charts, tables, photos, and artwork requires consideration of more variables.
Favorable to a finding of Fair Use under the Section 107 analysis:
• Copying a single chart or table with attribution from a previously published paper in order to compare its results to yours.
• Showing an image of a website home page in order to discuss, critique, or analyze its design.
• Republication of public domain images does not require permission; no copyright attaches to public domain material, though citation is required in accordance with ACM guidelines.
• Parody or criticism of third-party images.
• Transformative use of an image that changes the original to provide a new benefit to the public.
• Use of third-party images for an oral presentation at conferences or in classrooms (but not a recording of such presentation).
• Creating low-resolution thumbnails of copyrighted images that serve a completely different purpose than the original images.
• Use of screenshots only for the purpose of critique.
Unfavorable to a finding of Fair Use under the Section 107 analysis:
• Using any graphic images from a website or another author’s work to illustrate a point in your paper (but not to study, critique, or comment on those images) --you would need permission or to find images that have been licensed for free use.
• Videos made of an oral presentation and incorporation of images used in such oral presentation into a paper for subsequent publication and distribution.
• Using thumbnails created by someone else, as well as any use of high-resolution thumbnails that can be enlarged to original dimensions without losing definition
• Use of screenshots to illustrate a point (in contrast to use of a screenshot for purposes of critique). Terms of Service on a website often specify what uses can be made of images found on the site and of screenshots of the sites’ pages.
• Redrawing a figure does not change the Fair Use analysis; the figure cannot be used without permission just because it is redrawn.
