You see a video on YouTube that includes short clips from a copyrighted work. How can you evaluate whether fair use (or fair dealing) applies?

  • Compare the video to other ones on the uploader’s channel.
  • Submit the video to the automated system for evaluation.
  • Consider the criteria for fair use (or fair dealing), including whether the video is a parody or critique with social value.
  • Calculate the percentage of copyrighted content to make sure it’s less than 25%.
