Fair use: a guide for artists

Pat from American University's Center for Media and Social Impact writes, "Can an artist use images from Facebook in her collage? Can an art teacher show pictures he took at an exhibition in class? Can a museum put a collection online?"

The College Art Association has created a Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts, helping the field of people who make, study and showcase the visual arts figure out how to make a fair use call. The field is abuzz with the news, and even in related fields, word is out -- musicians are interested, too.
