Authors Alliance Gives Nonfiction Authors Guidance on Fair Use

Authors Alliance rolled out a set of guidelines—“Fair Use for Nonfiction Authors”—that “is designed to empower authors to exercise their right to use source materials to further their research and writing goals by helping them to make confident fair use decisions,” according to the press release. It helps authors understand how to properly use song lyrics in an academic paper, quote from a novel in a work of literary criticism, incorporate a photograph into an article, quote from unpublished letters in a memoir, and more. It also addresses three common situations nonfiction authors come across: discussing copyrighted material, using copyrighted material to support a point, and using copyrighted material for non-consumptive research. There are FAQs about fair use and rebuttals of common fair use misconceptions.

For more information, read the press release.
