Fair UseAn exception to the copyright laws"exclusive" rights to authors!If the "use" is "fair" then nopermission is necessary!Otherwise, you have to ask authors/creators for permission
Fair Use = FourFactors"purpose and character of the use" - is the use commercialnature or nonprofit/educational!"nature of the copyrighted work" - is it a creative work? isit unpublished?!"amount and substantiality" of the part used vs. the entirecopyrighted work!Market effect - "effect of the use upon the potentialmarket...of the copyrighted work" (section 107 of copyrightlaw)
Fair Use = FourFactorsThe more factors in your favor, the morelikely that it is a "fair use exception"!It is not a simple equation because its acomplicated legal issue
