Re: Using News Clips in Documentaries- Rights Concerns/Fair Use

This "fair use" debate has come up regularly over the years in this forum. The above explanation by the lawyer is probably the best, most concise, realistic interpretation I've seen.

The take away from this explanation is the word "defense". It's called the "Fair use Defense"… not a license to steal copyrighted works! So you just need to ask yourself one question, "Do ya feel Lucky? Do ya?" Chances are you will get sued, and good luck with your "defense".

So, despite Shane's and Andrew's examples of what they got away with… I'd be EXTREMELY cautious about including unauthorized copyrighted clips in your documentary.
