Useful description of fair use from UGA

Here's something useful in these days when everyone is talking about copyright and fair use: a page from the University System of Georgia with the University's interpretation of copyright and fair use. The page also contains a pointer to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Interesting opinion from the University's lawers and librarians: "Based upon our initial review of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), we do not believe that the act affects the guide's fair use analysis." The page was created back in 11/97, presumably right after the DCMA was passed.

The University's analysis contains a particularly useful section with a variety of examples illustrating what is and isn't fair use.
