Fair use is the right to use, in certain circumstances, copyrighted material without seeking permission from or making a payment to the copyright holder. As part of the celebration of Fair Use Week 2015, the Office of Copyright and Scholarly Communication (OCSC) will be hosting a discussion of the fair use of works of art in research and publishing featuring Jennifer Jenkins, director of the Duke Law’s Center for the Study of the Public Domain. In addition, Kevin Smith, director of the OCSC, will be giving an update on the Georgia State University and HathiTrust law suits and how the rulings in both affect fair use. Haley Walton, Outreach Coordinator for Open Access at Duke Libraries, will also be giving a brief summary of best practices in fair use of video games in research and teaching.
