What is fair use?
For those of us who would appreciate a clear, crisp answer to that one, we’re in luck. The Center for Social Media and Washington School of Law at American University are sponsoring development of a growing number of Fair Use Best Practices statements that inform a fresh approach to the subject and make it easier than ever to know what’s fair. The Best Practices statements follow recent trends in court decisions in collapsing the Fair Use Statute’s four factors into two questions: Is the use you want to make of an other’s work transformative — that is, does it add value to and re-purpose the work for a new audience — and is the amount of material you want to use appropriate to achieve your transformative purpose? Transformative uses that re-purpose no more of a work than is needed to make the point, or achieve the purpose, are generally fair use.
