Fair Use in Seven Words [Video]

Use Fairly. Not too much. Have reasons.

This video from the University of Virginal highlights the goal of fair use in US copyright law, emphasizing that this provision allows creators to build on what came before them. Fair use protects the ability of individuals to add to the culture without impacting normal commercial use of the work.

Don’t forget to join us tomorrow, February 27, from 1-2 p.m. in JAH 207 for “Behind the Scenes at Cell Press,” as we sit down with Dr. Stephen Matheson, editor-in-chief, Cell Reports. Learn more about the event.
