    to perform the work publicly Fair Use Fair use lets you use parts of works created by others in your work Sometimes you need to obtain permission from the authors owners of an original work to use parts of it The concept of fair use is somewhat vague when discussed in the abstract Its meaning depends critically on the particular facts of the individual situation The law does not clearly distinguish which uses are fair and which are not The fair use doctrine allows limited reproduction of copyrighted works for educational and research purposes The relevant portion of the copyright statute says that the fair use of a copyrighted work including reproduction for purposes such as criticism news reporting teaching including multiple copies for classroom use scholarship or research is not an infringement of copyright The law lists the following factors as the ones to be evaluated in determining whether a particular use of a copyrighted work is a permitted fair use rather than an infringement of the copyright The purpose and character of the use including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes The nature of the copyrighted work The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole The effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work Although all of these factors will be considered the last factor is the most important in determining whether a particular use is fair Where a work is available for purchase or license from the copyright owner in the medium or format desired copying of all or a significant portion of the work instead of purchasing or licensing a sufficient number of authorized copies would be unfair Where only a small portion of a work is to be copied and the work would not be used if purchase or licensing of a sufficient number of authorized copies were required the intended use is more likely to be found to be fair However there is no specific number of words lines or notes that may safely be taken without permission Moreover acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material does not substitute for obtaining permission You can obtain permission from an author or publisher using this sample copyright permission letter Visit the U S Copyright Office website for the most recent information about Copyright and Fair Use To search for registered works and documents from January 1 1978 to the present click on the Search Records tab from the main page For information on how to locate copyright records prior to January 1 1978 consult Circular 23 The Copyright Card Catalog and the Online Files of the Copyright Office Note A fee based service to conduct the search and produce a report on its findings is available through the Copyright Office at the Library of Congress Alternatively you may contact the Copyright Clearance Center CCC a pay per use fee based service that
