Making Fair Use Make More Sense: A White Paper

Description: This document is part of a series of white papers on various copyright issues. Fair use is a powerful tool for people who want to use and expand on copyrighted works. Fair use is special among the other copyright exceptions because it isn’t specifically targeted at one kind of use. Instead, fair use is purposely open ended to permit many different kinds of uses. One downside of this however, is that it can be difficult for anyone — lawyer and nonlawyer alike — to figure what is/isn’t fair use under the law. This white paper attempts to review the fair use statute, go over its famous “four factor test,” and offers some suggestions about how to think through each part.
