fair use rule

   A law that authorizes the noncompetitive use of copyrighted materials for certain purposes without the copyright owner's permission and without giving the author the right to sue for infringement. Fair uses are generally considered to be those intended to further scholarship, education or an informed public (e.g., limited photocopying for classroom use or quoting from a work in a review), but limits on fair use are growing.
