Dealing With Copyrighted Material
Not knowing about it can cost you $$$$$
Explanation of copyright and the works to which it applies.
- Literary Works
- Video Games
It really applies to all PUBLISHED work!!
But Wait There Is More....
To claim fair use there are 4 things to consider:
1 - The purpose - Are you using it to make money, or for educational purposes? Using copyrighted material for educational purposes is ok under fair use, but not for monetary gain.
2. - Nature of work. Are you using published or unpublished work?
3. - Portion of the work. Are you using all of it or just a piece of it. Using the whole work is usually not ok, but using a small part is ok.
4- Effect on Market -- Will your use of the work keep the author or artist from getting paid.
You may be asking yourself, "What is Transformativeness?"
1 - Does the new work add value?
2 - Has the new work been repurposed?
3- Has the new work created a new audience?
4- Is there a new meaning to the original product?
If you answered "YES" then you can claim fair use!!
