Fair Use Week

Fair Use Week is an annual celebration of the important doctrine of fair use. It is designed to highlight and promote the opportunities presented by fair use, celebrate successful stories, and explain this doctrine. Libraries emphasize fair use for one week, but we rely on fair use throughout the year.


Have you ever received a YouTube strike on your account? Doug Walker, The Nostalgia Critic, released this awesome discussion of the YouTube copyright take down system. 

"No more staying silent. The time has come to start some dialogue about Fair Use and how it's constantly being trampled on via the YouTube claim and take down system."
