Copyright ‘Fair Use’ Reminder
Just a reminder that “fair use” under U.S. copyright law applies to copyright granted in the United States.
Other countries—such as Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand—have what’s called “fair dealing”. Their definitions of what is permissible, while similar to those in the United States, tend to be more limited in scope
If you post pages regularly and sometimes reference non-U.S. material, it would be a good idea to make yourself at least passingly familiar with the laws of the country(s) where the material originates. Below, I’ve posted Wikipedia links to the “fair use” and “fair dealing” concepts, however IMO it would be wise to go to the external sources listed for each country, just to be on the safe side.
As far as I can tell, Israel’s fair use legislation, which went into effect in May 2008, is the only one that fully recognizes the U.S. concept.
