Fair Use Week: Fair Use and Universities - 25 years of publishers fighting over the use of excerpts for classroom teaching with Susan Kornfield, Esq.

Original research is fundamental for universities, but using copies of books, articles, and other creative works for teaching and learning is a vital educational tool. While most materials are purchased for use, fair use is a critical tool for making copies for the university community. Susan Kornfield, Esq. was involved with the case of Princeton University Press v. Michigan Document Services way back in 1996. The dynamics are the same in a lawsuit by publishers against Georgia State University that has continued for over a decade.

Fair Use Week: ‘Fair Use, What’s the Big Idea?’

What is fair use and why is it so important for scholarship, expression, inquiry, and more? Fair use is a unique feature of American copyright law that supports freedom of speech under the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Other countries are adopting fair use — South Korea and recently South Africa, for example. Join us for a conversation with Melissa Levine, Director of the U-M Library’s Copyright Office. Organized with Sheila Garcia and Gabriel Duque.
