Copyright Office - Fair Use Index
Fair use is a longstanding and vital aspect of American copyright law. The goal of the Index is to make the principles and application of fair use more accessible and understandable to the public by presenting a searchable database of court opinions, including by category and type of use (e.g., music, internet/digitization, parody). The Fair Use Index is not a substitute for legal advice, but is a helpful starting point for those seeking to better understand how courts across the country have applied the fair use doctrine to a variety of fact patterns.
