Why can’t everyone enjoy fair use? Well, they can, according to Prof
Brandon Butler, American University Washington College of Law (WCL). In a
guest blog for EIFL, Prof Butler discusses the merits of fair use in US
copyright law, and addresses commonly held objections to the more
widespread introduction of fair use around the world. The conclusion:
there’s no reason why people in countries with different legal traditions
should not also enjoy the benefits of an open norm.
