Pursuant to 17 USC 12 and 17 USC 1, §512, all still and moving images, excerpts or other media originating from or related to the content, promotion and/or marketing of motion pictures referenced herein are copyright to respective owners as indicated in their copyright and trademark notices.
Notwithstanding the Limitations on Exclusive Rights, Fair Use, pursuant to 17 USC 1, §107, all stills, moving images, excerpts or other publicity materials have, regardless, been obtained directly from press and publicity websites managed by the copyright owners or third parties (e.g. EPK.TV and image.net) authorized by the copyright owners to distribute these images for the purposes of criticism and commentary. Their use here is exclusively and only for the purposes of criticism and commentary. No other use has been permitted and appropriate copyright notices are included wherever necessary.
In particular instances where further technical restrictions have been placed on the acquisition and use of electronic press materials, Rubin Safaya (hereinafter “PUBLISHER”) has a) contacted the motion picture studio to obtain written permission to use the materials online, and b) directly gained clearance to access and obtain the materials lawfully.
Notwithstanding exceptions published on July 26, 2010, by Librarian of Congress James H. Billington, whereby six classes were permitted to circumvent copy protection schema (17 U.S.C. § 1201(a)(1)), no materials on this site have been obtained by circumventing copy protection schema, except where electronic press materials provided by motion picture studios or their designated agents were made available to PUBLISHER by such entities only on copy-protected formats, e.g. DVD, exclusively for the purposes of promotion, criticism or comment.
METHOD OF COPY PROTECTION FROM THIRD PARTY USE
All motion picture excerpts are hosted directly on PUBLISHER’s web server. Motion picture excerpts are stored in directories to which external, third party access has been disabled. Excerpts are displayed using an HTML 5-based, embedded player in which no user controls are provided to either download, distribute or embed motion picture excerpts outside the context of the articles they accompany. PUBLISHER believes, in good faith, this implementation constitutes sufficient copy protection as circumvention would require reverse engineering, hacking or other methods of gaining unauthorized access—all prohibited under Copyright law.
METHOD OF TRANSMISSION, STORAGE AND DELETION
Where requested by the studios, SSL, SSH or SFTP encrypted secure copy methods have been used to transmit materials from the PUBLISHER’S secure network to the web server.
Materials stored on PUBLISHER’S computers for preparation and backup reside on 256-bit AES encrypted directories or disk images which meet current Department of Defense standards for secure encryption. The computer network is protected with a professional firewall that drops all unauthorized access requests.
Upon deletion from local or offline storage, all filenames are deleted from the relevant filesystem and securely destroyed with a 7-pass erase compliant with the DoD 5220.22-M standard for permanent and unrecoverable data sanitization.
