In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at an index of fair use copyright cases, a Letterman slide show, Ztylus iPhone accessories and the launch of Photographers Quarterly.

  • The U.S. Copyright Office has launched its Fair Use Index "to make the principles and application of fair use more accessible and understandable to the public by presenting a searchable database of court opinions, including by category and type of use (e.g., music, internet/digitization, parody)." The Index lists relevant cases and conclusions with a link that leads to a PDF of the case summary in plain English.
  • David Letterman Reflects on 33 Years in Late-Night Television includes a 10-photo black and white slide show of the host preparing for a show.
  • Rob DePaolo's Review Of Ztylus iPhone Lens Kit & LED Ring Light praises the design of the case-based mounting system for wide angle, macro, fisheye and polarizer modifiers. But you do wonder, like him, where the telephoto option is.
  • Photographers Quarterly is a new online magazine edited by Jonathan Blaustein and designed by Rob Haggart "to show portfolios and make something purely about the photography."

More to come...
