Overview ● Protection attaches as soon as the work is created ● Can register with the US Copyright Office to get legal benefits ○ Online at copyright.gov for a small fee ● Gives copyright holder certain exclusive rights: ○ Make copies ○ Make derivative works ○ Distribute the work ○ Publicly perform/display the work ● Protection lasts for life of the author plus 70 years
  5. 5. Infringement ● Stepping on exclusive rights of the copyright holder ● Access to the work ○ Some element of copying ○ No infringement if independently created ● Substantial Similarity ○ Idea v. Expression ○ Remove unprotectable elements and compare

Exceptions- Fair Use ● Fair use is a user’s right, or exception to, copyright law ○ Allows some otherwise infringing uses to be noninfringing ○ Don’t have to get permission from the copyright holder ● Meant to encourage development and creativity ○ Allows people to build upon the works of others ● Four Factors: ○ The purpose and character of the use, including whether the use is commercial or for nonprofit educational purposes ○ The nature of the copyrighted work ○ The amount and substantiality of the portion used ○ The effect of the use on the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work
  7. 7. Dr. Seuss Enterprises v. ComicMix ● First factor: for fair use ○ Boldly! is not a parody, it’s a mashup, so the protection is slightly different ○ Very transformative, making it less important that the book was commercial ● Second factor: slightly against fair use ○ Creative, but published extensively and for a long time ● Third factor: for fair use ○ Used as much as was necessary to make the new transformative work ● Fourth factor: neutral ○ Not a replacement, more for people who have read Go! ○ Dr. Seuss does license some versions and does collaborations Verdict: fair use
  8. 8. Public Domain ● Works that are in the public domain no longer have copyright protection ○ Copyright term of the work has expired ○ Copyright holder released the work to the public domain ● Free to use in any way without having to give attribution or worry about copyright restrictions ● Works published in the US before 1924 are in the public domain ○ Gain new works on Jan ○ Should consult Cornell’s Copyright Term and the Public Domain chart for other works ● Works created by the US government are automatically in the public domain
  9. 9. Three Layers of CC Licenses 1. Legal Code ● Legally binding terms of the license ● Upheld in court 1. Human Readable Deed ● Clear, understandable version of the license ● Easy for everyone to use 1. Machine Readable Code ● Indexed by search engines and other sites ● Makes works easy to find
