Fair Use, What's the Big Deal?

March 18, 2019

What is fair use and why is it so important for scholarship, expression, inquiry, and more? Fair use is a unique feature of American copyright law that supports freedom of speech under the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Other countries are adopting fair use — South Korea and recently South Africa, for example. Join us for a conversation with Melissa Levine, Director of the U-M Library’s Copyright Office. Organized with Sheila Garcia and Gabriel Duque.

Duderstadt RM 1180 on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at noon.

Lunch will be provided.
