- Gave credit to the copyright owner.
- Included a disclaimer that you didn’t intend to infringe copyright.
- Didn’t intend to profit from it.
- Modified the work or added your own original material to it.
- Found the content available on the internet.
- Saw that others posted the same content as well.
- Said that the use is fair use.
Tips for posting content
Before you post content on 0censor, you may want to ask:

- Do I have permission to use all of the content included in my post?
- Does my use of the content fall within an exception to copyright infringement?
- Is the content protected by copyright (for example, is it a short phrase, idea or public domain work)?
