Fair Use Helper

The Fair Use Helper is a form that walks you through the "four factors" when you want to use a particular copyrighted work in a particular way. It serves two purposes:

  1. It helps you decide whether what you want to do is fair use.

  2. You can save a copy of your completed form as documentation of your good faith effort to abide by fair use. This is important if you ever get a DMCA take-down or copyright lawsuit.
