It's Fair Use Week!
This week (February 20-24, 2017) marks the 4th annual Fair Use/Fair Dealing week. Primarily focused on Fair Use and Fair Dealing in the university setting, this week will showcase various lectures, events, and advocacy actions that all authors, publishers, and rightsholders can learn and benefit from.
It can feel at times that the publishing world is at odds with the doctrine of Fair Use, but indeed, the doctrine is an important component of copyright law and doesn't receive the positive attention that it should.
