Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week 2017 Highlights Balance in Copyright System

*Cross-posted from ARL news*

The fourth annual Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week took place February 20–24, 2017, growing to 140 organizations—as well as numerous individuals—celebrating the important and flexible doctrines of fair use and fair dealing. This year’s event was organized by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and participants included universities, libraries, library associations, and many other organizations, such as Authors Alliance, Creative Commons, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Public Knowledge, the R Street Institute, and Re:Create. Forty-five ARL member institutions contributed a wide range of resources this year. Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week was observed worldwide, with participants in such countries as Australia, Canada, Colombia, Israel, Korea, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United States.

Throughout the week, participants celebrated the essential limitations and exceptions to copyright that fair use and fair dealing provide, allowing the use of copyrighted materials without permission from the copyright holder under certain circumstances. While fair use and fair dealing are employed on a daily basis, Fair Use/Fair Dealing week provides a time to promote and discuss the opportunities presented, share successful stories, and explain these doctrines.

 Each day, new blog posts and other resources were produced and shared and institutions hosted a variety of live events, such as panel discussions, film screenings, button- and card-making stations, and more. Daily roundups and additional resources are available on the Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week website. There were over 100 news and blog posts, 13 videos, 3 infographics, and 2 podcasts shared over the week. Below are some highlights.

Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week 2018 will take place February 26–March 2. Plan to participate!

Fair Use Fights Fascism: First Amendment Thoughts During Fair Use Week

This week is Fair Use Week, an annual celebration of the important doctrines of fair use and fair dealing. It is designed to highlight and promote the opportunities presented by fair use and fair dealing, celebrate successful stories, and explain these doctrines.

*This is a guest blog post by Kyle K. Courtney, Copyright Advisor at Harvard University, working out of the Office for Scholarly Communication.*

This year, I think, we should embrace and celebrate Fair Use Week more than ever. With our tumultuous political climate and daily shifts in the news cycle – this year I have thought a lot about fair use and its ties to our First Amendment rights.

As we know, the First Amendment has a great ideal: it protects political speech, promotes democratic culture, enhances participation in government, enables self-expression, and, hopefully, enhances the search for truth.

And, as our community is also well aware, copyright law can restrict uses. This is the nature of the law. Yes, we do grant a limited economic monopoly to the creator for a period of time. And even though U.S. law typically frowns upon monopolies (see the Shreman Act), that limited economic monopoly has an eventual benefit for that bargain with the public – eventually the rights will expire, and the public may use the materials freely.

However, through infringement suits, cease and desist letters, and other actions, a rightsholder does have the ability to stop certain uses during that long monopoly – uses such as printing, performing, or otherwise disseminating copyrighted works prematurely, before the expiration of rights into the public domain.

However, it is my belief, and others’ as well, that the fair use doctrine is intended to preserve, without infringement, the values enshrined in the First Amendment.

The fair use doctrine has been called an “internal safety valve” of copyrights’ potential overreach.

Fair use provides a narrow exception for certain types of limited uses. I use the safety valve analogy, as many others also teach, because fair use ostensibly guards against any chilling effect that would inhibit public speech. This prevents the type of “total control” if copyright holders were granted unlimited freedom to control all uses of their creative works.

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has written:

The First Amendment [must not be read] in isolation, but as seeking to maintain a system of free expression designed to further a basic constitutional purpose: creating and maintaining democratic decision-making institutions. (Stephen Breyer, Active Liberty: Interpreting Our Democratic Constitution, p. 39)

Fair use is a critical part of that purpose. Fair use’s preamble states that certain uses of copyrighted material will not be infringement, including such free speech tools such as news reporting, commentary, criticism, research, and scholarship. These tools are then harnessed by works such as journalism, filmmaking, songwriting, and scholarly publications of all kinds – works that in certain circumstances, absolutely need to use portions of the original works, fairly, to make their point.

For those like myself, that are students of history, the First Amendment’s language, “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or of the press,” was part of the Bill of Rights which was specifically added to supplement the Constitution. The Bill of Rights was added to ease the fears of the anti-Federalists, who were concerned that the Constitution lacked the language and strengths to prevent our new government from turning into a tyranny. A tyranny we had just defied by winning the Revolutionary War.

So, from its anti-Federalist origins in the founding of this country, to the many Supreme Court decisions, and the greater public understanding, the First Amendment has always had direct correlation with the fundamental belief that open, informed discussion of current events helps create and maintain our democratic decision-making institutions.

In a federal case from 1986, Maxtone-Graham v. Burtchaell, the court stated about the fair use doctrine:

From the earliest days of the doctrine, courts have recognized that when a second author uses another’s protected expression in a creative and inventive way, the result may be the advancement of learning rather than the exploitation of the first writer. (Maxtone-Graham v. Burtchaell, 803 F.2d 1253, 1259 (2d Cir. 1986), emphasis added)

Furthermore, Democracy itself could be challenged if copyright owners could set massive financial and legal barriers so high that the public at large would be unable to access and use materials in a fair and open manner.

There is a strong public interest in allowing these fair uses. What if the author has a need to directly use copyrighted materials? Paraphrasing and summarizing could be insufficient to make the point. Or, more importantly, what if seeking permission would result in censorship? And there are plenty of situations when there is simply no reasonable alternative to obtain consent. In all these scenarios, we understand why fair use must prevail.

Let us take a moment to understand during this Fair Use Week, and every day really, that the fair use doctrine gives us great abilities: we can make fair uses of copyrighted materials to challenge “alternative facts,” to examine and re-use photographs, to post-and re-post videos, speeches, and other media, and to simply quote directly from sources – for the purposes of challenging those sources with our own commentary, criticisms, news reporting, and analyses.

That’s’ how you fight fascism and tyranny.

Fair use provides us with the ability to use, re-use, comment, report, and criticize and maintain our dogged pursuit of the truth. Open, informed discussion is how we maintain our democratic decision-making institutions, and fair use is a large part of that equation.

If you are celebrating Fair Use Week this year, consider yourself both a fair use advocate and a first amendment supporter!

Happy Fair Use Week!

ARL Files Amicus Brief in Capitol Records v. ReDigi

This week is Fair Use Week, an annual celebration of the important doctrines of fair use and fair dealing. It is designed to highlight and promote the opportunities presented by fair use and fair dealing, celebrate successful stories, and explain these doctrines.

The start of Fair Use/Fair Dealing week, which runs from February 20-24, 2017, immediately follows a week in which ARL filed amicus briefs along with other library associations and organizations in two fair use cases. The first case, ARL joined the American Library Association (ALA), Association for College and Research Libraries (ACRL) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) in filing a brief in the Georgia State e-reserves case which is again before the Eleventh Circuit. In the second case, ARL joined ALA, ACRL and the Internet Archive in filing an amicus brief in Capitol Records v. ReDigi, currently before the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, arguing that other existing limitations and exceptions can tilt the first fair use factor (character of the use) in favor of the user and that fair use encourages innovative services.

In the summary of the argument, the brief notes:

First, in its truncated fair use analysis, the district court ignored the similarity between the use ReDigi sought to make and uses authorized by Section 109(a). This similarity should have tilted the first fair use factor, the purpose and character of the use, in favor of ReDigi. In Authors Guild v. HathiTrust, 755 F.3d 87, 102 (2d Cir. 2014), this Court used the rationale for a specific exception—17 U.S.C. § 121, which permits the making of accessible format copies for people who have print disablilites—to support a finding of a valid purpose under the first factor. Likewise, the Copyright Office has repeatedly based fair use conclusions on specific exceptions in the context of a rulemaking under section 1201 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 1201. As this Court did in HathiTrust and the Copyright Office did in the section 1201 rulemaking, the district court should have recognized that the purpose behind the first sale right tilted the first fair use factor in favor of ReDigi.

Second, the brief argues that a positive fair use determination in this case would encourage libraries to provide innovative services to their users. Fair use findings in technology cases have permitted libraries to provide new, digitally-based services such as HathiTrust Digital Library. In addition to enabling researchers to find relevant texts and perform critical data mining, HathiTrust provides full-text access to over fourteen million volumes to people who have print disabilities. A fair use finding in this case would provide libraries with additional legal certainty to roll out innovative services such as the Internet Archive’s Open Library. Such a result would increase users’ access to important content without diminishing authors’ incentive to create new works.

The full brief can be read here.

 

Happy Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week 2017!

This week is Fair Use Week, an annual celebration of the important doctrines of fair use and fair dealing. It is designed to highlight and promote the opportunities presented by fair use and fair dealing, celebrate successful stories, and explain these doctrines.

Today marks the start of Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week 2017!

Fair use and fair dealing are essential limitations and exceptions to copyright, allowing the use of copyrighted materials without permission from the copyright holder under certain circumstances. Fair use and fair dealing are flexible doctrines, allowing copyright to adapt to new technologies. These doctrines facilitate balance in copyright law, promoting further progress and accommodating freedom of speech and expression.

While fair use and fair dealing is employed on a daily basis by students, faculty, librarians, journalists, and all users of copyrighted material, Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week is a time to promote and discuss the opportunities presented, celebrate successful stories and explain the doctrine.

The level of participation in Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week is entirely up to each participant. Some will publish a blog post on fair use on one day during the week, while others might host events each day of the week. Below are some examples of ways to participate in Fair Use Week:

  • Write a blog post on fair use/dealing.
  • Publish an op-ed.
  • Host a live panel on fair use/dealing at your campus, institution, or organization.
  • Host a webcast or webinar.
  • Create a video about fair use/dealing.
  • Publicize fair use/fair dealing on social media using the hashtag #fairuseweek2016.
    (On Twitter, you can also follow and tag @fairuseweek.)
  • Write to your member of Congress highlighting the importance of fair use and how you, your members, or institution/organization rely on fair use.
  • Create resources or share existing resources. (See http://fairuseweek.org/resources/ for a great collection of resources developed during last year’s Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week celebration.)
