Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Poetry | The Future Librarian | Scoop.it

This code of best practices, devised specifically by and for the poetry community,  helps poets understand when they and others have the right to excerpt, quote and use copyrighted material in poetry. 

 

It is meant to enhance the ability of poets, teachers, scholars, and others to rely on fair use by serving as documentation of commonly held understandings about best practices in fair use drawn from the experience of the poetry community itself and supported by legal analysis.

 

The code is meant as both an illustration of and a guide to which uses of copyrighted materials are considered reasonable and appropriate within the poetry community.
