Nonfiction authors guide using Fair Use

New Guide available – Fair Use for NonFiction Authors

The guide addresses three common situations faced by nonfiction authors in which fair use may apply:

1) criticizing, discussing, or commenting on copyrighted material;

2) using copyrighted material to support a point made in the author’s work; and

3) using copyrighted material for non-consumptive research.  It also addresses the most frequently asked questions about fair use and clears up some common misconceptions about when it might apply.
