It’s Fair Use Week!

Happy Fair Use Week everyone! Fair Use Week is an opportunity to celebrate and spread awareness about a critically important¬†right in copyright law. It’s the right that allows us to reuse copyrighted work in new and different ways; a right that is fundamental to so much of the teaching, research,¬† and scholarship that happens in educational institutions.

This infographic from ARL does a really great job of highlighting what fair use is and why it is important.

We’ll use the blog this week to highlight tools and resources you can use to help you better understand fair use. You can also use the hashtag #FairUseWeek to be part of the conversation on social media.
