Fair Use for Non-Fiction Authors

February 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

This workshop is designed for nonfiction authors of all types — including historians, biographers, scientists, and scholars of literature, theatre, art, and music — who want to know more about using copyrighted materials. The workshop will help researchers who want to do things such as:

  • Include song lyrics in a paper discussing musical trends;
  • Quote from a novel to analyze the author’s use of metaphors in a work of literary criticism;
  • Incorporate a photograph in an article about the photographer’s use of light and shadow;
  • Use a chart in a scientific paper critiquing a researcher’s methodology and findings; or
  • Quote from unpublished letters in a biography or memoir.

Join us to review principles and limitations of fair use for common situations nonfiction authors face when incorporating copyrighted works into their writings.
