What is Copyright and Fair-Use?

Quoted from Macworld, May 1994.

What copyright is: A copyright is a protection under Title 17 of the U.S. Code offered to the authors of literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and other intellectual properties, whether published or unpublished.

Fair Use: The fair-use doctrine allows for copying, without permission, for such purposes as criticism, commentary, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. There are four main factors that determine fair use: (1) the purpose of the use (whether the copying is intended for commercial or nonprofit purposes); (2) the nature of the original (whether it was published or unpublished is one consideration here); (3) the amount and importance of the portion used in relation to the original work as a whole; and (4) the impact of the use on the original work's commercial value.
