Copyright: Determining “Fair Use”

Courts consider four factors in disputes over fair use:

  • The purpose and character of the use, especially whether the use for profit.
  • The nature and purpose of the copyright work.
  • The amount and substantiality of the portion of the work used.
  • The effect of the use on the potential market for the copyrighted work.

Fair use does not apply to graphics: you must obtain written permission to use any graphics.
