When do I know if it is fair use?There are four factors to consider: 1. What is the intention?

2. What is the origin?

3. How much will be used?

4. What effect would it have?

Ask yourselfContinuationFour answers to consider:1. The piece of work is being used for nonprofit, educational, personal, commentary and even news reporting.2. The origin of the work is a fact piece of material or it has been officially published.3. Only a small amount of the piece of work will be used.4. There is no negative effect if the piece of work goes widespread because the original print is outdated or unavailable, the copyright owner is unidentifiable, or the piece of work has an implied license or it is for educational use.

When do I know if it is fair use?* When in doubt visit the CCC (Copyright Clearance Center).
