Scholarly writers often face difficult decisions when dealing with copyrighted material. What can you use without permission? How much can you use? How does your relationship with your publisher shape the scope of what you can quote, excerpt, or borrow?

Authors Alliance offers expert insight into these kinds of questions, in particular with the release of their new guide, Fair Use for Nonfiction Authors. Join us this fair use week for an overview of copyright and fair use, information on where you can learn more and find assistance, and check out the brand new release of the Authors Alliance guide.

Contact Michael Wolfe with any questions.
