Frequently Asked Questions and Answers from Termly’s Legal Experts

How do you write a copyright disclaimer?

You write a copyright disclaimer by stating that you’re using copyrighted works for “fair use” purposes under section 107 of the Copyright Act. Your copyright disclaimer should also credit or link to the original creator.

Alternatively, you can write a copyright disclaimer that discloses your ownership of copyrighted works. This disclaimer is not necessary, but can help discourage intellectual property theft.
