In This Guide


This is a basic copyright guide and not meant to be comprehensive.

Copyright is not a set of bright line rules. In fact, copyright issues, guidelines, and interpretations are, in effect, a moving target, as case law, litigation, and copyright infringement challenges increase in frequency.

Your solution may benefit most from an in-person consultation. While I am not a lawyer, I can make a reasonable and prudent guess based upon my training and extensive use of the copyright law and fair use exemption.

Thank you, Jodee Kuden.
