Happy Fair Use Day

In support of creativity and artistic freedom, as well as consumer rights today the Quincy House will be celebrating Fair Use Day. Because

From Ars Technica:
"Very often people believe that a use of copyrighted material that would normally fall into fair use is an infringement of copyright. It is a belief that copyright holders seek to enforce, either through frivolous litigation, intimidation, or legal and political maneuvering to legally restrict what can be considered fair use. This is especially true when it comes to critical reviews, or parodies."

Ways you can celebrate:

Cover a song, or for that matter make a tableture of a song and upload it to your favorite tab site.

Back up a DVD that you bought.

Quote an article.

Lend an mp3 to a friend.

Fair Use Day
