"The Rise of Fair Use? A Look at the State of the Fair Use Defense"  

A series of significant fair use decisions are changing the landscape of fair use. The Google Books case, Cariou v. Prince, Lenz vs. Universal Music, SOFA Entertainment, Inc. v. Dodger Productions, Inc., Authors Guild v HathiTrust, Cambridge University Press et al. v. Patton et al (the "Georgia State” case), and many others are having a significant impact on the future of copyright.  What do these many cases mean for authors, copyright owners, reusers, and the public?   Has fair use gone too far or not far enough?    A panel of copyright experts explore the issues in an interactive discussion.
