Checklist for Fair Use
(Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC))
This checklist can be used to evaluate whether your educational use of a copyrighted resource meets the fair use standards in the Copyright Act. The accompanying Introduction provides additional explanation about fair use analysis. Based on the IUPUI Checklist, this checklist is organized into four major sections, reflecting the factors involved in determining fair use. Each section lists indicators that either favor or oppose fair use. Can be printed to retain a record of how faculty arrive at a fair use decision.
