This week is Fair Use Week, an annual celebration of the doctrines of fair use under U.S. law and fair dealing under the laws of many other nations.  Both provide limitations on, or exceptions to, a copyright owner’s rights that allow others to use protected works without first obtaining permission.

I am going to take this opportunity to point out the role of fair use to a free, democratic society.  If you haven’t thought of this connection before, I hope you will take a few minutes to do so.
