Academic and research libraries often cite fair use for the activities that we engage in to make content available to stakeholders. Depending on your perspective, fair use is a right or a defense outlined in United States Copyright Law. What most can agree on is that in the United States, we rely on case law to help us understand fair use and to implement strategies for sharing content based on that understanding. This webcast will give a back to basics overview of fair use and utilize case law to illustrate each factor of a fair use analysis.
