Fair Use Policy

Fair use is a legal doctrine that encourages freedom of expression by permitting, under certain circumstances, the unauthorized use of copyrighted works. The Copyright Act provides the legal framework for assessing fair use for something and identifies certain types of uses, for example, criticism, commentary, news reports, teaching, research and scholarship. As examples of activities which can be considered fair use. The following four factors for evaluating a question of fair use are required in international law:

1. Objectives and the character of use of Copyrighted materials

Including commercial uses or non-profit educational purposes: courts are concerned about the use of copyrighted work by a party claiming that fair use and are more likely to conclude that the education and non-commercial uses of non-profit products are fair. But this does not mean that all non-profit and non-commercial education are fair and all commercial uses are unfair.

The aim and the character of the use is instead balanced by the courts with the following other factors. Moreover, it is most common to consider “transformative” uses just. Transformative uses are those which add something new, for a different purpose or character and which don’t replace the original use of the work.

2. The attributes of the copyrighted material as a whole

Courts examine the amount and quality of the copyrighted material used under this factor. Fair use is less likely to be found where a large proportion of the copyrighted work is included; where the use is based on a small number of copyrighted materials only, fair use is more likely.

That said, under certain circumstances, some courts have found that using an entire work is fair. In other contexts it was decided to do not use a small quantity of a copyrighted work fairly because the selection was an important part of the work or “the heart.”

3. Nature of the copyrighted content

This aspect explores how much the work used corresponds to the intent of copyright to facilitate artistic expression. There is a less likely to endorse an argument of fair use than to do factual work using a more artistic or imaginative work (for example, a book, movie or song) (such as a technical article or news item). Furthermore, it is less likely to be deemed fair to use an unpublished work.

4. The Effect and Intention for Usage

Courts investigate whether, to what degree, unlicensed use is detrimental to the current or future market for the original work of the copyright owner. The courts consider in deciding this aspect if the existing demand for the original work is harmed by using it (for example by transferring the original sales) and/or whether it will be common by using it.
