Let’s…Make…a Deal!

I decided to link to a picture of fruits and veggies in wheel since it aligns with this being a health blog. On numerous occasions I’ve seen the “color wheel” drawings with fruits in veggies that basically describe the nutrients found in fruits and veggies that are a certain color and all the health benefits of those nutrients. Very rarely do you find one that looks “real” so to speak. I feel like I could walk around a farmers market and come across something that looks this. Plus it’s fun and makes me think of game shows!

If I understand correctly, I can use this picture for a number of reasons. First, under “Purpose”, my use of this picture is for reasons that favor “fair use”: teaching – since this is for school, comment – since I commented on the picture above, restricted access – since this is most likely going to be seen by our specific class. This also comes up again under “Amount” – our class is small. This picture also only makes up a portion of my blog- it isn’t the main focal point.

Under “Nature”, I could fall under all three of the “fair use” points: this blog is published, it is nonfiction based, and (I believe) important to favored educational objectives. The last point I’m not 100% sure I understand, but I think it’s “favored educational objectives” because I’m saying “eat fruits and veggies” not “how to murder your roommate and get away with it”?   As far as “Effect” goes, I’m honestly not sure. I’m not technically making any copies, and I don’t believe my posting this will have any effect on the market.

I feel like this language is a bit gray and I could swing certain things either way with a “well technically…”, but I definitely see the value in finding out the usage terms for media because I’ve heard there can be very serious repercussions for not complying to these terms!

    Since it is for educational and nonfictional this abides by the fair use policy. Not only that, I enjoy the picture you have chosen. It is very artistic. The way the variety of the fruits are displayed is easy on the eyes.

    I love the photo you chose and I love how you compared it to the color wheel. It is a good teaching tool because I remember taking a nutrition class once and our professor showed us an example of a healthy plate and it had every color in it!
