Reclaiming Fair Use by Patricia Aufderheide; Peter Jaszi
Publication Date: 2018-04-27
Reclaiming Fair Use challenges the view that digital culture is incompatible with core copyright values. Beginning with an overview of the contemporary copyright landscape, Patricia Aufderheide and Peter Jaszi show how creators can rely on fair-use rights to make new work employing a range of information technologies. They draw on deep experience helping documentary filmmakers, English teachers, librarians, visual arts professionals, and nonfiction authors, among others, to develop their own codes of fair-use best practices. This second edition charts the burgeoning of fair use in law and practice since the book's original publication in 2011. It tracks the Twitter hashtag #WTFU (where's the fair use?), the maturing of the transformative use standard in legal disputes, and controversies about topics such as remix art and mass digitization. It provides new research authoritatively documenting changes in both attitude and practice among communities with fair-use codes. This research contributes to the growing international debate on copyright exceptions and their cultural and economic effects. With its no-nonsense advice and practical examples, Reclaiming Fair Use remains essential reading for anyone interested in intellectual property law, creative communities, the economics of copyright, and new media.
