Fair Use Week: Infographic

Each year ARL, the Association of Research Libraries, publishes a new infographic in conjunction with Fair Use Week, February 26 through March 2, 2018. The focus for 2018 illustrates How Fair Use Promotes the Creation of New Knowledge.
"Fair use is an essential right under copyright law, supporting the constitutional purpose of copyright: to promote the progress of science and the useful arts. Where copyright law might otherwise act to prevent people from accessing knowledge, fair use permits everyone to use existing cultural and scientific material without permission, under certain circumstances." - Association of Research Libraries, Infographic

ARL's Fair Use infographics are freely available to download (PDF) and use. Interested in more information about Fair Use Week? Review ARL's Fair Use Week web site.

Learn more about Fair Use and reviewing previous Fair Use infographics on AU Library's Copyright LibGuide, featuring ARL Best Practices in Fair Use.
