Fair use under fire

Worth reading is Fair Use Under Fire, an Online Journalism Review interview with Marjorie Heins, founder and coordinator of the Free Expression Policy Project at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU's School of Law. Heins is co-author with Tricia Beckles of a new report, Will Fair Use Survive? Free Expression in the Age of Copyright Control. In the interview, Heins discusses the uncertain state of fair use. She concludes:
"To the extent that fair use is not used, it will shrink, and to the extent that it is used and asserted, it will remain healthy and even grow. And in the area of journalism, it's especially important that that happen."
