Fair Use Week

18 February 2019 - 9:25am by Dana Haugh

Celebrate Fair Use Week (February 25 - March 1) with Yale University Libraries! "The week highlights the many uses relying on fair use and helps to inform our academic communities and the public at large about this exception created in the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.  Fair use is described in §107 of the Act and may be used judiciously upon undertaking analysis of the section's four factors: Purpose of the use; Nature of the work being used; Amount of the original work used; and whether there is an effect on the Marketability for the original copyright holder.  This clause in the law allows all individuals the right to use copyrighted works without permission of the copyright holder IF the user, after reasonable assessment of the four factors, finds that the use weighs in favor of fair use.  For more information about fair use and undertaking a fair use analysis, see the fair use tab in this Research Guide under Using Copyrighted Works and the Fair Use Analysis tool also found on the office of General Counsel's Rights Clearance for Digital Projects." The Cushing/Whitney Medical Library will be hosting a fair use popup table on Tuesday, February 26th from 11:30am - 1:30pm. Stop by and learn about fair use and its importance in our community!
