Why is fair use important?
You should know all about fair use because if you copy something that is not yours you can get in a lot of trouble so its good to use that work properly and still giving the creator credit fro their work.
Four Factors Of Fair Use
- Purpose & Characters- Why am I using it? Am i using it to copy?
- Nature of the original work- Creative or imformational.
- Amount used- How much can you use? 30 seconds.
- Did it harm the market for original work?
What happens if you plagarise?
You can get fines of anywhere between $100 and $50,000 and up to one year in jail. Plagiarism can also be considered a felony under certain state and federal laws. For example, if a plagiarist copies and earns more than $2,500 from copyrighted material, he or she may face up to $250,000 in fines and up to ten years in jail.
