Fair Use

Fair use applies to things like copies. It is fair use to copy an article for your own education. It is fair use to quote from a book for scholarly purposes. Fair use is a limited grey area of copyright that is being lost as you read this. Digital Rights Management technology, such as in the Apple iTunes music, is preventing fair use.
