Fair Use Across The Media (2014)
Fine art, book publishing, motion pictures, television, theater, music and emerging technologies are all governed by the same legal precepts, but how fair use is applied in practice in each of them can be very different. For example, when a painter appropriates photographs, the use may be considered "transfor- mative," but when a band appropriates another artist's lyrics, a license may be required. The norms and concerns are shaped in part by different financing and insurance requirements, different levels of risk tolerance, as well as differences in the media themselves. After a brief review of the basic concepts, each panelist will discuss how fair use is applied in her/his designated area and, where relevant, will comment on the role of errors and omissions insurance.
