Frequently Asked Questions about Copyright and Fair Use

The Copyright Act gives copyright holders the exclusive right to reproduce works for a limited time period. Fair use is a limitation on this right.

How does fair use fit with copyright law? Copyright law embodies a bargain.

About Creative Commons Licenses: Our public copyright licenses incorporate a unique and innovative “three-layer” design. Each license begins as a traditional legal tool, in the kind of language and text formats that most lawyers know and love. We call this the Legal Code layer of each license. But since most creators, educators, and scientists are not in fact lawyers, we also make the licenses available in a format that normal people can read — the Commons Deed (also known as the “human readable” version of the license).

The Commons Deed is a handy reference for licensors and licensees, summarizing and expressing some of the most important terms and conditions. Think of the Commons Deed as a user-friendly interface to the Legal Code beneath, although the Deed itself is not a license, and its contents are not part of the Legal Code itself. Searching for open content is an important function enabled by our approach. Fair Use Checklist. Copyright & Creative Commons Explained for Kids Video. Questia How To Avoid Plagiarism Video.
