The third annual Fair Use Week, sponsored by the Harvard Library Office for Scholarly Communication (OSC), is here!
Wait, what is Fair Use? To paraphrase from the Harvard University OGC Copyright website, Fair Use is the right to use a copyrighted work under certain conditions without permission of the copyright owner to prevent a rigid application of copyright law that would stifle the very creativity the law is designed to foster.
There are many events underway–here are some highlights!
Follow the conversation on the OSC’s copyright blog, Fair Use Week Tumblr, and Fair Use Week Twitter feed, where we will release details about the coveted Fair Use Week tote giveaway.
