Frequently Asked Questions and Answers from Termly’s Legal Experts

What is the copyright disclaimer under Section 107?

The copyright disclaimer under Section 107 is a statement explaining that you’re using someone else’s copyrighted content for “fair use” purposes under Section 107 of the Copyright Act. Examples of fair use under the Act include criticism, commentary, and educational purposes.

A copyright disclaimer can be added to videos or other forms of media that feature the fair use of copyrighted work to help protect you against copyright infringement claims.
