Using the Fair Use Analysis Form
The Fair Use Analysis Form provides you a tool to help you make a reasoned and balanced application of the four fair use factors in the Fair Use Doctrine. This form enables you to make key considerations when determining fair use of a given copyrighted work. Your use of the form will likely reveal uses that are favored by the Fair Use Doctrine as well as uses that are not favored by the Fair Use Doctrine. It is important for you to consider whether the cumulative weight of the factors weighs in favor of fair use.
