Fair Use

Fair Use is the exclusive right for a copyright holder to reproduce for a limited time period.Fair use allows people other than the copyright owner to copy part or, in some circumstances, all of a copyrighted work, even where the copyright holder has not given permission or objects. Fair Use gives copyright holders exclusive right for a limited period of time. The copyright holders however do not give complete control of the work. Copyrighted works can not be put in public domain.How to tell if something is Fair Use. Copyright law embodies a bargain. It gives copyright holders a set of exclusive rights for a limited time period as an incentive to create works that ultimately enrich society as a whole. In exchange for this limited monopoly, creators enrich society by, hopefully,

contributing to the growth of science, education and the arts.
