In this seventh and final episode of a series about using the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use, you’ll learn:

  • Why licensing isn’t a viable solution to copyright issues in preservation projects with global reach
  • How U.S. fair use law applies to initiatives that involve foreign materials
  • How preservationists in other countries can take advantage of local law (and the Code) to advance their work and the roles they can play in advocacy for better and more flexible copyright exceptions
