  • Generally, fair use falls under the categories of:
  • Still... Just because copyrighted material is used for the purposes of: • News • Criticism • Parody • Education Does NOT automatically mean it is “fair use”!
  • So, HOW do I determine... If something is “FAIR USE” or not???
  • Four Factors of Fair Use 1. Purpose 2. Nature 3. Amount 4. Effect You must apply ALL 4 factors!!!
  • 1. Purpose WHY are you using it?
  • WHY? Educational purposes are more likely than commercial purposes to be fair use.
  • 2. Nature WHAT KIND of work is the original?
  • Fact vs. Fiction 1492 Using a factual or non-fiction work is more likely to be considered fair use.
  • Published vs. Unpublished Using published work is more likely to be considered fair use.
  • 3. Amount Less More The less you use, the more likely it is to be considered fair use.
  • But, regardless of how little you take, DON’T TAKE… The heart of a work!!!
  • 4. Effect WHAT is the effect of its use on the potential market for the copyright owner?
  • Taking money away from the copyright owner is a… NO-NO!!!
  • If you apply ALL 4 factors of fair use • AND you can say “YES” to ALL of them, • THEN it is considered FAIR USE. • And you may use the copyrighted material without getting permission. • But you still must CITE it!
  • Getting Permission • If it doesn’t fall under “fair use,” you must obtain PERMISSION to use the work/image. • Sometimes you must pay a FEE. • Sometimes you may use it for FREE with their copyright statement. • Email an author or website for permission.
