Jaszi is author of the 2011 book Reclaiming Fair Use: How to Put Balance Back in Copyright with Patricia Aufderheide.

From reviews on Amazon
“Here, [Aufderheide and Jaszi] offer sound advice on users’ rights to copyrighted material in their survey of fair use, a “safety valve” built into copyright law. They remind readers that copyright was created to benefit the public, not to enrich producers. . . . This is a useful work—thoughtful, clear, and generally free of legal jargon—and deserves to be read by scholars, bloggers, documentarians, journalists, and everyone else, since we are all touched daily by copyrights.”
