Fair Use Day, Use your rights!

Take a moment to use your fair use rights. Create a parody, critic a work, use a small potion of a work for educational purposes. Take time to learn about your rights.

It is important the people are aware of what they can legally do with regards to copyrighted material,” said Pirate Party US spokesman Andrew Norton. “Very often people believe that a use of copyrighted material that would normally fall into fair use is an infringement of copyright. It is a belief that copyright holders seek to enforce, either through frivolous litigation, intimidation or legal and political maneuvering to legally restrict what can be considered fair use. This is especially true when it comes to critical reviews, or parodies.

The pirate party has been around a year in the US, I am curous to see wht they are doing and where they are headed. With the RIAA's litigation attacks on student and the MPAA's propaganda campaign in full swing I think we are left with few alternatives to aggressive political and social action to protect our rights and add balnce to a broken system.
