Celebrating Fair Use Week


The University Libraries are celebrating Fair Use Week from February 22-26, 2016. It is an annual celebration that acknowledges the important doctrine of fair use. Fair use (or fair dealing) is an essential limitation and exception to copyright, allowing the use of copyrighted materials without permission from the copyright holder under certain circumstances. Fair Use Week is a time to promote and discuss the opportunities presented, celebrate successful stories, and explain the doctrine.
