Fair Use allows the reuse of copyrighted materials without permission from the copyright holder under certain circumstances. Fair Use helps facilitate balance in copyright law, promoting progress in education and the arts while accommodating freedom of speech and expression.

Unfortunately there are many misconceptions regarding the application of Fair Use in educational settings. In this one-hour workshop, we will review the Fair Use statute and dispel many of the myths that may limit educators' reuse of third-party works for teaching, research and scholarship.

There will also be a Fair Use poster session and trivia game held from 10 a.m.-noon, Thursday, Feb. 23, in King Library's main lobby. Stop by to learn more about Fair Use and test your knowledge of the law!

This workshop is part of the Miami University Libraries' celebration of Fair Use Week (Feb. 20-24), which recognizes the important doctrines of Fair Use in the United States and other jurisdictions.
