BREAKING: U.S. Copyright Office Publishes Index of Fair Use Decisions


Register of Copyrights Maria A. Pallante today announced the launch of the U.S. Copyright Office’s Fair Use Index, which is designed to provide the public with searchable summaries of major fair use decisions.

According to the U.S. Copyright Office, “Although not a substitute for legal advice, the Index is searchable by court and subject matter and provides a helpful starting point for those wishing to better understand how the federal courts have applied the fair use doctrine to particular categories of works or types of use, for example, music, internet/digitization, or parody.”

You can search for cases or just scroll down the list here.

On first sight this looks quite exciting and useful. Props to government on this one.
