Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Supreme Court has told us that fair use is one of the 'traditional safeguards' of the First Amendment. As this book makes abundantly clear, nobody has done better work making sure that safeguard is actually effective than Aufderheide and Jaszi. The day we have a First Amendment Hall of Fame, their names should be there engraved in stone." -Lewis Hyde, author of Common as Air: Revolution, Art, and Ownership"

It is essential reading for all those authors who worry about digitisation, as well as the public who want to know the fair limits of their rights in copying.

Would recommend to anyone who has an interest in the subject or works with any form of media.

Format: Paperback
Copyright has hit the headlines this year for the problems of digitisation. The book by Aufderheide and Jaszi addreses these problems, and more, in a concise and readable way, although it has to be said that it is a book by americans for the US market. In the UK, the equivalent concept is "fair dealing". The idea that one can copy parts of a copyright text or image without consulting the copyright holder is a very old one, because how else can one criticize or comment on a work without doing so? Indeed, by quoting a text in a review, say, it is giving publicity to a book and so maybe helping its sales, which must be good for the copyright owners, usually the author and the publisher. Digitisation has brought the concept into focus owing to the ease of copying and broadcasting that work to the whole world over the internet. That has not only raised the old problem of wholesale piracy but also how far fair use can go within the confines of the law. One particular problem arose from the large scale scanning of books by Google, which made them available on its website. For old books where the author is long dead (Dickens, Shakespeare etc), there is no problem, but since copyright is a long lasting right (70 years after the death of the author), there is a problem for more recent in-copyright works. This is why there is a major unresolved dispute between authors and Google. But yet the same company uses the doctrine of fair use in its search pages. For example, thumbnails of images are an essential part of the image search, to which no author objects at all. Without fair use, we would have no image search at all. But there is mounting evidence that copyright is being abused by major copyright holders, or indeed, some non-copyright holders.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Reclaiming Fair Use is an extremely valuable scholarly work in the field of copyright law. It allows documentary filmmakers, educators and others to develop their own balanced, legal, common sense guidelines for fair use of copyright works. Filled with many examples of legal case studies and "best practices" guidelines for many fields, it deserves a place alongside the excellent books written on the subject by Michael Donaldson.

Fair use and copyrights in general can be a complicated subject, but the authors did an excellent job explaining the content and issues. Do not need a legal background. Would recommend to anyone who has an interest in the subject or works with any form of media.

Read for an Ethics class (though not a requirement). A really interesting look into Fair Use and its history. I liked that the authors really stressed balance between the two sides of the issue. And the examples are really excellent.
