Lunch+Learn: Copyright II: Fair Use

October 14, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Last month we went over the basics of copyright and how you can use and protect your works. But what if you want to use someone else’s work? Or you find your work being used by someone else, and when you alert them they say “its fair use!” At this month’s Arts Counsel Texas Lunch + Learn we will be diving into one of the most complex and trick parts of copyright law: when is something a fair use?
Led by Thomas Maddrey and Michael Heinen, this session will discuss what fair use is, how is it determined, what are some examples of when it works and when it doesn’t, and a recent look at active court cases where fair use is the main point. As a special treat, the U.S. Supreme Court is taking on their first fair use case in over 25 years this October! Register to here to watch.
