Fair use rights have been under siege for a long time and from every direction. Some times it seems that almost anyone who makes or sells anything wants to eliminate another piece of fair use rights for their own gain. Manufacturers of cars and printers, media corporations, even garage door opener company's have tried to undermine fair use, often by hiding behind the DMCA.Link (Thanks, Eric!)
We think fair use should have it's own "Day", a day to celebrate Fair Use in any lawful way you wish. Exercise your fair use rights or contact a corporation or government of your choosing and let them know you want fair use rights and you want them protected - demand your fair use rights! Use what ever means you have available: phone, email, smoke signals, snail-mail, etc.
Be creative, join the forums and tell us how you plan to celebrate Fair Use Day! Trees have their own day, as do ground hogs and even income tax. Surely fair use rights are at least as important.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
