Crews, Associate Dean of the Faculties for Copyright Management Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis 530 West New York Street Indianapolis, IN 46202-3225 Voice: 317-274-4400 Fax: 317-278-3326 http://www.copyright.iupui.edu copyinfo@iupui.edu We are pleased to offer the following Checklist for Fair Use as a helpful tool for the academic community. We hope that it will serve two purposes. First, it should help educators, librarians, and others to focus on factual circumstances that are important to the evaluation of a contemplated fair use of copyrighted works. A reasonable fair-use analysis is based on four factors set forth in the fair-use provision of copyright law, Section 107 of the Copyright Act of 1976. The application of those factors depends on the particular facts of your situation, and changing one or more facts may alter the outcome of the analysis. The Checklist for Fair Use derives from those four factors and from the judicial decisions interpreting copyright law. A second purpose of the checklist is to provide an important means for recording your decision-making process. Maintaining a record of your fair-use analysis is critical to establishing your reasonable and good-faith attempts to apply fair use to meet your educational objectives. Section 504 (c)(2) of the Copyright Act offers some protection for educators and librarians who act in good faith. Once you have completed your application of fair use to a particular need, keep your completed checklist in your files for future reference. As you use the checklist and apply it to your situation, you are likely to check more than one box in each column and even check boxes across columns. Some checked boxes will favor fair use, and others may oppose fair use. A key concern is whether you are acting reasonably in checking any given box; the ultimate concern is whether the cumulative weight of the factors favors or opposes fair use. Because you are most familiar with your project, you are probably best positioned to make that decision. To learn more about fair use and other aspects of copyright law, visit the Copyright Management Center website at http://www.copyright.iupui.edu. Revised: April 1, 2004 Copyright 2004, Indiana University Thanks to Dwayne K. Buttler, now at the University of Louisville, for his assistance with creating the checklist.
