Bringing Fair Use to Life
How can artists like Andy Warhol, Carrie Mae Weems, Roy Lichtenstein, or Richard Prince legally use somebody else’s materials in their own art? Are you using somebody else’s photograph, illustration, text, or video in your own scholarship or creative project? Do you need permission to do that? Join University Libraries’ Copyright Services for a hands-on workshop on the important exception of fair use, an exception in the law that allows use of copyrighted content without permission. Learn how to use copyrighted materials confidently and legally in your research, teaching, and creative endeavors.
The workshop will cover the factors to consider in determining fair use and look to examples of authors and artists that have relied on fair use in the production of their creative works. Building on last year’s workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to work through a fair use analysis while making their own creative work using materials from the OSU Libraries’ collections.
