In recognition of Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week 2017 programs, coordinated by the US & Canadian based Association of Research Libraries, ARL has released a helpful infographic on Fair Use Myths and Facts.
Fair use and fair dealing are vitally important rights for everybody, everywhere—students, faculty, librarians, journalists, and all users of copyrighted material. These doctrines provide balance to the copyright system by allowing the use of copyrighted resources without permission from the rightsholder under certain circumstances, thereby promoting creative progress and accommodating freedom of expression.
The “Fair Use Myths & Facts” infographic is freely available as a PDF to embed on blogs and websites and to print and hand out at events. Share the link, embed the PDF on your site, print copies for your next event, and continue to support and work with your partners on promoting fair use.
