CAA Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts

The College Art Association teamed up the CMSI to simply the approach to the principles found within the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts. Today we take a closer look at Principle Five: Access to Related Collections in Memory Institutions.

Institutions may want to provide online access to art related resources for interested parties that may include students, artists, or the general public. This access enhances the education of others and allows for preservation. Using the code and this principle, memory institutions and their employees may invoke fair use, in some situations, to preserve or provide online access to copyrighted material.
