Is the US government 'fair use' copyright clause a good thing?

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

One of the rights accorded to the owner of copyright is the right to reproduce or to authorize others to reproduce the work in copies or phonorecords. This right is subject to certain limitations found in sections 107 through 118 of the Copyright Act (title 17, U. S. Code). One of the more important limitations is the doctrine of “fair use.” Although fair use was not mentioned in the previous copyright law, the doctrine has developed through a substantial number of court decisions over the years. This doctrine has been codified in section 107 of the copyright law.

Should Fair Use exist?

Yes

  • Fair Use allows reasonable copying of copyrighted works. Fair use allows a reasonable level of use of copyrighted works, while still allowing people to keep most of the rights to their work.




No

  • Fair use doesn't give copyright holders enough rights. Fair Use allows people to copy (under certain conditions) without the permission of the person who created the work. Some people may argue that this means that people will lose some of their rights that they deserve.
