Understanding Fair Use3:13 with Wilt Chaimberlain
Fair use is an exception to copyright that allows usage of creative works without the copyright holder's permission. However, it only applies in pretty special situations. Let's break down when fair use might come into play, and the four requirements that need to be met.
Fair use is very much a United States-based idea. Canada has a similar concept in their laws, called "fair dealing," and most other countries in the world do recognize exceptions to copyright law for educational purposes.
While many of the conceptual points of fair use may apply to you if you live outside of the United States, and are important to understand, the details we get into are going to be specific to the United States. If you have questions about fair use or similar concepts in your country and how they apply to your own work, please consult an experienced intellectual property attorney.
