The Fair Use exemption to copyright infringement is a difficult concept for those within the legal community because of its unique “case-by-case” application.  Without any red line rules, providing guidance to typical users is even more challenging. This paper reviews several recent cases regarding the application of Fair Use and how the interpretation of Fair Use varies across the Federal Circuits. The most recent case of Cambridge v. Patton is discussed as well.

Key words: Copyright infringement, fair use doctrine.
