About This Site and the Information on It
All funny quotes aside, all materials (with exceptions listed below), graphics (also with exceptions listed below), patterns, design, and information are the sole intellectual property of Cynthia L. Long aka Merouda Tremayne(SCA) and are not to be used without permission. This site is for the personal use and enjoyment of those individuals who share a passion for 14th Century clothing.
I found out on 2-2-13, that even though I had this page up as early as 2003, someone stole the bulk of my site in 2009. It took nine months to prove the property was indeed mine and their site was deleted by their hosting company. I will hunt all thieves down with no mercy.
The exceptions to this are the photos taken from various texts from the Museum of London series, which is the property of the Museum of London. Further exceptions include the handouts in PDF format for my classes which contain photos and illustrations from various works. These are covered under the Fair Use clause of the Copyright act.

Sec. 107. of the Copyright law;Limitations on exclusive rights – Fair use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other
means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.
In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include –
· (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
· (2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
· (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole;
· (4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.
