Fair use allows limited use of copyrighted materials without permission from the copyright holders for certain functions such as teaching and parody. The use of these materials must be limited and not for commercial gain. Fair use, while it may be used as a defense against copyright lawsuits, has rarely been explored within the context of the courtroom.
