Would Congress Revisit Fair Use?
David S. Kemp, a lawyer who writes frequently for Justia's Verdict blog, posted a nice summary of the current American legal Fair Use doctrine.
This comes in response to hearings late last month in front of the House Judiciary Committee, which is apparently considering what it might do to the law. Kemp, following the line of some of the witnesses testifying, believes that Congress should act to strengthen fair use (no duh) but specifics will come in part 2. This column is a review of the current state of the law - primarily the Copyright Act of 1976 - and some of the court cases that have considered it.
