This blog (as explained in greater detail below in the right-hand column) constitutes an exploration of issues related to copyright and fair use in our contemporary digital culture. The blog began and continued through April 2008 as a class project in Peter Friedman’s Legal Analysis & Writing classes at Case Western Reserve University of Law during the spring 2008 semester.
Now, however, I will now be writing on fair use and copyright on my blog Ruling Imagination: Law and Creativity. On Ruling Imagination, I write about all the ways law affects creative endeavors and also about the way creativity informs legal practice. While that scope plainly is broader than the scope of this blog, it also plainly encompasses fair use issues. Also, as any regular reader of this blog will have realized, it is impossible to understand fair use and copyright without a much broader understanding of creativity than is often brought to bear on these areas.
I hope my regular readers will join me at Ruling Imagination. In the meantime, I will keep What is Fair Use? up. I hope its approximately 250 entries will continue to be a valuable resource to anyone concerned with copyright in our times. In addition, its first two months as a classroom project will, I hope, serve as a model and inspiration for teachers everywhere to engage their students with the material with which they are working. Others seem to have thought the same thing.
