Declaration of Fair Use

Fair Use is defined under U.S.C. Title 17 as follows:

“Sec. 107. Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use.

Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include -

(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;

(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;

(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and

(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.”

Guidelines for Determining Fair Use

Contributors should adhere to the following guidance when utilizing materials not of their own creation:

1. Appropriately acknowledge authors of works being excerpted, used, or drawn upon in creating contribution(s).

2. Acknowledge websites that are sources of borrowed material. Wherever possible, show good faith by attempting to obtain permission from the website author or his/her representative to use the borrowed material.

3. Do not use excessive portions of any textual work; as an example, excessive could be more than 5% of a document in excess of 10,000 words, or 10% of documents less than 10,000 words.

4. Do not use borrowed material in such a way as to deliberately and maliciously conceal the fact of another’s original authorship (plagiarism).
