Copyright in Action: Fair Use Myths and Misconceptions

Description:

Fair use is an exception found in U.S. copyright law that users, including information professionals, can consider utilizing when looking to make copies of copyrighted works. Codified in in Section 107 of U.S. copyright law (Title 17, United States Code), it outlines specific factors to consider when trying to determine if the reuse of a work may be considered fair or infringing.
