Matthew Rimmer on fair use

Matthew Rimmer takes a closer look at fair use, with reference to Naomi Novik’s testimony at the recent congressional hearing.  One reaction I’ve seen to the hearing, which is something I noticed at the time, is that there weren’t any tech industry representatives–Google etc. got plenty of criticism, and a bit of defense from Peter Jaszi, but tech isn’t Peter’s central focus.  So in that respect, the hearing did not hear from everyone with a vital interest in fair use.  Individual artists need fair use, and they need intermediaries to have fair use too; their interests aren’t opposed, but they aren’t exactly the same either.
