Fair Use Provides copyright protection to creative works in order to foster the creation of culture. Its best known feature is protection of owners’ rights. Fair use is a user’s right. Fair use keeps copyright from violating the First Amendment. Fair use is flexible; it is not unreliable. Judges refer to four types of considerations mentioned in the law: the nature of the use, the nature of the work used, the extent of the use, and its economic effect (the so-called “four factors”).
