Fair Use,
Copyright, &
Creative Commons

Is this fair use?
Fair Use:
A Legal Gray Area
Important factors to consider regarding fair use.
Consider the effect on the sale of or value of the copyrighted work.

Ask yourself, "would my creation serve as a substitute for the copyrighted work?"
If "no", then it is fair use because you have added new meaning and/or made an original creation.
Strive for transformative uses (used in a new way and for a new audience)
Examples include: Criticism, Commentary, Newsreporting, Parody, Remix, Mashup

Your creation should be for uses such as nonprofit, educational, or personal.

Is this fair use?
FAIR USE is the ability to use copyrighted work without permission but only in certain ways and in specific situations.
Consider the amount used in relation to the entire copyrighted work.
Borrow small bits from the original and no more than necessary.
Beware of borrowing sections that constitute the "heart" of the work.
The Supreme Court describes fair use as
"the guarantee of breathing space for new expression within the confines of copyright law."

Copyright Act of 1976 gives automatic copyright protection to works once they are created
Work is copyrighted for the lifetime of the single creator, plus 70 years
Work must be in a tangible form, NOT:

titles or names
short phrase
slogan or idea
process or system
*Many of these can be trademarked

Copyright Extends to the Internet
The Internet is NOT the public domain. Copyright law is easy to violate by downloading texts or images from the Internet.

A copyright notice is not required under current law.

To be safe, assume that if a work can be copyrighted, then it is copyrighted and permission is required.
