Welcome to the 5th Annual Fair Use Week Celebration!
This year, Fair Use Week will celebrate its fifth anniversary from Monday, February 26 to Friday, March 2, and will feature infographics, videos, stories, events, scholarship, and more.
Here at Harvard, where we first launched a full week of fair use celebrations in 2014, the Library’s Office for Scholarly Communication is hosting a variety fifth anniversary activities. (For a review of the fair use statute origin story, look no further than our Folsom v. Marsh comic.)
We welcome you to follow our guest blog posts from national and international fair use experts, attend the “Fair Use Gameshow” event at MIT, discover more Fair Use Week comics, and attend the Fifth Anniversary Fair Use Week Symposium, “Tried & True: Fair Use Tales for the Telling.” Thanks to the generosity of the Knight Foundation, this event will bring together a vibrant community of artists, scholars, lawyers, librarians, archivists, and other leading fair use experts in a day of panels, discussions, and demonstrations. We will also talk about and examine our very own Knight News Challenge Prototype grant project, “Can I Fair Use It? Crowdsourcing Fair Use Knowledge.”
As always, our Copyright First Responders will act as official ambassadors to Fair Use Week, donning t-shirts to start conversations around campus and online.
