Abstract

On Thursday, March 1, 2018, the Harvard Library Office for Scholarly Communication hosted "Tried and True: Fair Use Tales for the Telling," a one-day program celebrating Harvard's Fifth Anniversary of Fair Use Week. Leading fair use scholars and practitioners shared their stories and engaged in lively discussion about the powerful and flexible fair use provision of the Copyright Act and its applications. Topics included treatment of the fair use doctrine in recent jurisprudence, conflicts over the use of visual works in remixes and mash-ups, academic work and social commentary, filmmaking, controlled digital lending practices in libraries, software preservation, and more. This article discusses the examples and ideas presented during the program and offers resources for further study in the application of fair use.

Keywords: Intellectual property, copyright, fair use
