How much do you know about fair use? If you are a student, you probably benefit from it every day, sometimes without realizing it. When does fair use apply to what you do? Here are some examples (via ARL’s infographic):
Writing papers with quotes cited from other works
Posting a copy of a news article to Canvas
Searching Google Books for a page containing a certain quote
Forwarding an email with photos attached
Posting a short clip from a TV show onto Facebook
Taking a selfie with a Star Wars advertisement in the background
Writing a chapter of fan fiction and posting it online
