Copyright in Action: Fact or Fiction?--Myths about Copyright and Fair Use

 Registration is closed for this event


Fair use—a powerful and commonly used exception found in US copyright law—is often misunderstood, especially by our patrons.  As information professionals, library staff are often on the front lines of answering questions or providing services that have copyright implications.  Most of us have probably heard someone say, “it’s only one chapter/just part of a song/for my class, that’s fair use, right?” Is that true, or not?  How did you answer? Join us for this session to further our copyright discussion sharing your stories and questions about fair use and how we can reuse works.


Attendees to this session will have the opportunity to

  • Review the four factors of fair use
  • Learn about common misconceptions about how it can be applied
  • Discuss best practices for assisting patrons
