ABSTRACT
Fair Use in the U.S. Economy: 2017 is the latest in a research series that examines the value of fair use to the U.S. economy and its importance to copyright law for the digital age.

CCIA released the first study in 2007, which demonstrated the immense benefits that the U.S. economy derives from fair use; that is, the limited copying and redistribution of copyrighted works such as music, articles, books, and video for socially and economically desirable purposes. CCIA released updates in 2010, 2011, and 2017, which provide updated values to quantify fair use through the economic activity that comes from balanced copyright law.
