Guiding Questions for Fair Use Scenarios
The Fair Use Scenarios is an eMaze composed of eight different scenarios. For our LC, we will review each scenario and answer the overarching question for each scenario: Can these scenarios be reasoned as fair use?
To assist, evaluate each scenario on the basis of the following reasoning questions.
- What was the purpose of the original work?
- What is the user's purpose of the original work? Is the use for teaching, scholarship and research, criticism, commentary, or parody?
- Is the purpose of using the copyrighted work different from the original purpose of the work?
- Was the material taken appropriate in kind and amount, considering the nature of the copyrighted work and of the use?
- Did the unlicensed use "transform" the material taken from the copyrighted work by adding value? Is the use of copyrighted material contributing to a unique, new creative work or does your use of the copyrighted material mostly repeat the work for the same intent and value as the original?
- Will your use compete financially with the author of the original work?
