The Fair Use Factors: Their History and Application

copyright symbol
The language of the fair use factors has changed very little since the nineteenth century, but the doctrine of fair use has changed a great deal. Understanding the history of the factors, particularly their changing importance, is crucial to making accurate fair use decisions today. This workshop from Ana Enriquez of the U-M Library Copyright Office will focus on fair use cases from the last forty years, tracing the relative importance of the four statutory factors and their subfactors.
