Its emphasis is on copyright issues especially relevant to the education and library community, including examples of fair use and policies. Useful copyright charts and tools are continually added to help users evaluate copyright status and best practices.
Introduction

About the Stanford Copyright and Fair Use Website

The Stanford Copyright & Fair Use site was started by Mike Keller, Vicky Reich and Tim Stanley in 1996 to support a talk that Mike was about to give. The talk was about the Michigan Documents Services case and whether it was Fair Use for a local copyshop to make coursepacks for university students. The idea for the site was proposed on a Wednesday and the site was up and running by the next Monday.

It’s grown a bit over the years, and today includes primary case law, statutes, regulations, as well as current feeds of newly filed copyright lawsuits, pending legislation, regulations, copyright office news, scholarly articles, blog and twitter feeds from practicing attorneys and law professors.

Its emphasis is on copyright issues especially relevant to the education and library community, including examples of fair use and policies. Useful copyright charts and tools are continually added to help users evaluate copyright status and best practices.

Featured cases include full text of court documents of district court cases that The Center for Internet and Society Fair Use Project is involved with as well as other cases of high interest.

The site is supported pro bono by Justia.com.
