Fair Use for Documentary Filmmakers

Date: Mar. 21 (6:00 PM - 8:00 PM)

Location: The New York Foundation for the Arts, 20 Jay Street, Ste 740, Brooklyn, NY 11201

Fair use is a provision of the Copyright Act that allows certain uses of copyrighted works, such as making and distributing copies of protected material, without permission. Though it’s a very old concept, and was written into law in 1976, the right of “fair use” lay fallow for decades, as large copyright holders created a culture of insinuating that artists must ask for permission. David Van Taylor, who played an important part in the revitalization of the aspect of fair use copyright in the mid-2000′s, will join NYFA to present on the topic, help determine if it is right for your film, and navigate what steps you will need to take if you do choose to make use of it.
