The Tianjin Juilliard School (“Tianjin Juilliard”) expects all members of its community to respect the rights of ownership of intellectual property by adhering to United States copyright laws. The law grants copyright holders the exclusive right to reproduce, distribute, perform, and prepare derivative works from the original work. The full text of the United States copyright law is available on the U.S. Copyright Office web site at: http://www.copyright.gov/
The law also specifies limitations on these exclusive rights under the terms of fair use, which provide exceptions to the rights of copyright holders in certain cases, allowing people to use portions of works for non-profit, academic, and other purposes provided those uses stay within certain bounds. There are four basic attributes involved in determining fair use:
the purpose or character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes; the nature of the copyrighted work; the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and, the effect of the intended use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. To aid in interpretation of fair use, institutions may follow or endorse guidelines developed by scholarly and library organizations. While helpful, these guidelines are not law, and courts reviewing copyright cases many not necessarily make a ruling based on such guidelines
