New Media Rights spends quite a bit of time working directly with filmmakers and online video creators on fair use related issues. And while there are many amazing resources out there for filmmakers and online video creators, we wanted to create something a bit different to help these creators learn more about fair use.
Enter The Fair Use App. We filtered down our experiences working with filmmakers and video creators to create an app that can help them better understand:
1. When they can reuse content.
2. How their choices affect a fair use argument.
3. When it’s time to talk to a lawyer about fair use.
While our web app isn’t quite as awesome as a tiny fair use wizard that will give creators all the answers; it's helpful tool to help them make better decisions about how to reuse content.
You can check out our fair use app here! As this is version 1.0 of our app we're especially looking for feedback on how we can make the app even more helpful.
