Fair Use Analysis Tool
Fair use is very context-dependent, so only you can determine if your use is fair. You may find it helpful to consult with an attorney or other specialist for further input. This form does not substitute for such consultation.
This tool can help you organize your thoughts around the issues, although it does NOT tell you whether a proposed use is fair or not, and does NOT provide any kind of legal advice. It simply helps you structure your own reflections about the fair use factors, and provides a record that you did consider relevant issues. No computer processes your form; the end result is only a printable record of what you entered.
Fair Use Evaluator
This tool can help you better understand how to determine the "fairness" of a use under the U.S. Copyright Code.
