You Be the Judge: Copyright and Fair Use in the Courts

February 15, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Friday, February 15, 2019

12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Gainesville Campus | Nesbitt 3203

Facilitated by Terri Bell, MAS
Copyright Officer
Digital Archivist

In this workshop, we will explore Fair Use through the lens of three copyright infringement cases in order to understand how the four factors of fair use work together.

This will be a discussion-based presentation where you get to play the judge. First, we will perform an analysis of the respective issues of each case. Then we weigh the case against the four fair use factors and finally, we will compare our humble (or not so humble) opinions with how the courts actually ruled in each case. Two of the three cases represent the category of Education/Scholarship/Research, and the third case is in the Film/Audiovisual category.
