Current Practices

Since there is so little case law interpreting section 108, this section collects information about the copyright policies of various institutions as they relate to section 108. For policies that have attracted litigation, see the section on ongoing litigation above. This list, which is by no means exhaustive, includes practices under section 108 as well as practices that emulate section 108 in areas that it does not govern. These latter practices would likely rely on fair use if they were challenged. This list is an expansion of the list on the Columbia Copyright Advisory Office website that is mentioned below. If you are interested in the copyright policy of a specific university, try the following search on Google: “sample university” “copyright policy”
