College Art Association, Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts
"Copyright protects artworks of all kinds, audiovisual materials,
photographs, and texts (among other things) against unauthorized use by
others, but it is subject to a number of exceptions designed to assure space for
future creativity. Of these, fair use is the most important and the most flexible.
The Code describes common situations in which there is a consensus within the
visual arts community about practices to which this copyright doctrine should
apply and provides a practical and reliable way of applying it."
