- Book (10% or 1000 words)
- Poem (entire poem may be used but no more than one poem by a poet or 5 poems from an anthology)
 

What is "fair use"?
- Copyright law allows portions of a copyrighted work to be used without the author's permission for specific purposes. Such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.
-
There are four factors involved in "fair use". When these four factors are weighed against one another, they indicate whether or not a work can be used withour copyright holder permission:
1. What is the purpose of the use?
2. What is the nature of the work?
3. How much of the work will be used?
4. What is the effect upon the market or potential market?

Additional Guidelines
-Students may incorporate portions of copyrighted materials when producing a project for a specific course.
-Students may perform and display their own projects and use them in their portfolio or use the project for job interviews or as supporting materials for application to graduate school.
