+FAQ 45: Axiom Copyright information
+Axiom is intended for not-for-profit, personal, educational use.
+Any other use is permitted but not endorsed.
+A fundamental project goal is to document the system for future
+educational, research, and scientific use.
+Axiom may contain some copyrighted material whose use has not been
+authorized by the copyright owners. We believe that this not-for-
+profit, educational use constitutes a fair use of the copyrighted
+material (as provided for in section 107 of the U.S.  Copyright Law).
+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; and
+  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+The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of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 of the
+above factors.
