Celebrate Fair Use Week!

What is fair use? 

Fair use is a part of copyright law, and describes how ownership over copyright is limited in order to benefit our society.

It’s what allows teachers to use materials in the classroom, artists to remix to create new works, and comedians to parody the news.

What is Fair Use Week?

Fair Use Week takes place the last week of February, and is a time to celebrate how this special and important part of copyright law has allowed us all to use copyrighted material.
