In Copyright Part 1 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 October 2020's Arts Counsel Texas Lunch + Learn we dove into one of the most complex and trick parts of copyright law: when is something a fair use? Listen to Thomas Maddrey and Michael Heinen 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.
Lunch+Learn is made possible by Arts Counsel Texas and is held the second Wednesday of each month Feb-May and Sep-Dec.
