Copyright Act of 1976 – Fair Use & Information

Under section 107 from the Copyright Act of 1976, entitlement is given for “fair use” for purposes such as analysis, opinion, news coverage, schooling, scholarship, instruction and examining. Fair dealing is permissible use shielded by copyright regulation which might be violating if not endorsed. Non-profit educational or individual use goes in favor of fair dealing.

Section 107 holds a catalogue of the diverse intentions for which the emulation of a certain work may be viewed as righteous, including examination, remark, announcement coverage, training, erudition, and exploration. Section 107 further states four points to ponder while deciding if a specified usage is valid:

1. The aim and nature of the application, including whether the use has commercial intent or is non-profit educational purposes.

2. The description of the copyrighted work

3. The size and significance of the part utilized relative to the copyrighted work entirely

4. The impact of the use on the prospective market for, or cost of, the copyrighted work
