Fair Use Fair use is the most important restriction on the copyright holder's limited rights. Things to look out for: The use of copyrighted material without permission from the author Is it a copy of the original item The Quantity of what you use Does it change the point of view from the original
Keep in mind when deciding what is right and what is wrong Are you creating something new or just copying? Are you competing with the source you are copying from? Are you giving the author credit? AND The Quality of the material is just as important as the quantity.
