In this third episode in a seven-part series about using the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use, you’ll learn about:
- How fair use enables institutions to provide access to software for use in research, teaching, and learning settings while minimizing any negative impact on ordinary commercial sales
- How to provide broader networked access to software maintained and shared across multiple institutions, including off-premise access under some circumstances
- Safeguards to minimize potential risks, such as the establishment of a mechanism to register concerns by stakeholders
