Event Description:

Fair use is an important exception found in U.S. copyright law that outlines specific factors to consider when looking to make use of copyrighted works. This series of virtual workshop meetings builds upon our introductory webinar on fair use and dives deep into the concepts and best practices involved in making fair use determinations.  The live, interactive format will give attendees ample opportunity for discussion and hands-on practice with this important topic. 

Attendees of this live learning series will have the opportunity to: 

  • Complete an in-depth review of the legal text of Section 107 of US copyright law (Title 17, United States Code) 
  • Explore key U.S. court cases relevant to fair use  
  • Discuss fair use application cases
