Law, Ethics, and Social Media: A Primer on US Copyright Law, Fair Use, and Defamation in a Digital World

Law, Ethics, and Social Media: A Primer on Copyright Law, Fair Use, and Defamation in a Digital World | SoCon13 from Center for Sustainable Journalism at Kennesaw State University

Fair use allows for the use of copyrighted work for purposes of “comment and criticism.” Taking a picture (or even a short video) of a live show or off television should fall well-within the boundaries of fair use.
