Celebrate Fair Use … Come On!

Fair Use Week, an annual celebration of the doctrine of fair use, kicks off on Monday February 22!

An important limitation to the exclusive rights of copyright holders, fair use and its four factors can help you determine if your proposed use of copyrighted material favors fair use or if you need to secure permission from rights holders. For general information about fair use and links to resources written for students and faculty, check out the OWU Libraries Copyright and Fair Use LibGuide.
