The Copyright Era Meets the Open-Source World

Fair use is a complex area of copyright law. Publishers have a love/hate relationship with fair use because on one hand, it lets them legally repurpose existing copyrighted material. On the other hand, publishers want to prevent others from stealing their content and republishing it illegally. People exercise caution when using work created by someone else, which is good because they are aware of the content creator's rights. However, an underlying principle of fair use is to promote and build upon the existing work of others to further develop innovative ideas. Publishers and those in the legal community vary widely in their opinions of fair use and these perspectives should be explored in a thoughtful and productive way through this session.
