About This Item

At issue is whether the material has been used to help create something new or merely copied verbatim into another work. When taking portions of copyrighted work, ask yourself the following questions:. In a parody, for example, the parodist transforms the original by holding it up to ridicule.

At the same time, a work does not become a parody simply because the author models characters after those found in a famous work. Purposes such as scholarship, research, or education may also qualify as transformative uses because the work is the subject of review or commentary. Determining what is transformative—and the degree of transformation—is often challenging. RDR Books , F. Because the dissemination of facts or information benefits the public, you have more leeway to copy from factual works such as biographies than you do from fictional works such as plays or novels.

In addition, you will have a stronger case of fair use if you copy the material from a published work than an unpublished work. The scope of fair use is narrower for unpublished works because an author has the right to control the first public appearance of his or her expression. The less you take, the more likely that your copying will be excused as a fair use.

In other words, you are more likely to run into problems if you take the most memorable aspect of a work. This rule—less is more—is not necessarily true in parody cases. A parodist is permitted to borrow quite a bit, even the heart of the original work, in order to conjure up the original work.

The old snack-pak design held dollar bills perfectly. The new design does not -- the money has to be folded. I don't have a problem with the quality of the plastic sack; I have issue with the design of the sack.

The purposes for which I used the snack-pak sacks are no longer being met. I'm going to look for the old standby because it's kid friendly. Manaphraim, March 18, My store is Tomball, Tx.

Armybear, March 2, As far as for snacks, these are horrible. They are only good for a limited type of items, the opening is very small. I understand that you tried to produce a more specialized bag and the measurement markings is nice. However if so, please still offer the original rectangular bags.

Lily, July 28, The Great Value Portion Pack Snack Bags are a specialty snacking bag that is, by design, made for measuring snacks to be eaten on the go, such as nuts, small crackers, raisins, etc. We are sorry you did not like them. The Great Value Square Snack bags may be a good option for you. They are slightly larger than the rectangular snack bag and are easier to fill and close, especially with larger snack items such as carrots or graham crackers.

Where are my OLD snack bags?!? What in the world was someone thinking when they redesigned the snack bags? The wide opening on the long side has been changed to the small end. So stay flexible and adjust your portions based on your hunger, fullness, and other important goals.
