Fair Use Week: Day Four featuring Professor William Fisher’s CopyrightX class

For our fourth entry this week, we are privileged to share the newest lecture on fair use from Professor William Fisher, the WilmerHale Professor of Intellectual Property Law at Harvard Law School and Faculty Director at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society.  This lecture is part of Professor Fisher’s CopyrightX course:  a twelve-week networked course, offered each Spring under the auspices of Harvard Law School, the HarvardX distance-learning initiative, and the Berkman Center for Internet and Society.  The course explores the current law of copyright and the ongoing debates concerning how that law should be reformed.  This particular lecture, which will be featured in week 9 of the class, is titled “Fair Use Today.”   Many thanks to Professor Fisher for sharing it ahead of the official class release.
