Thread: FAIR USE - DOCUMENTARY AND TV

    Default FAIR USE - DOCUMENTARY AND TV

    I was wondering how people felt about fair use and whether it has been used in an Irish documentary. RTE charge 6 euro per second of archive footage which I think is disgraceful considering a combination of our licence fee and advertising have already paid for the shows. While I understand it shouldn't be possible to just nick large chunks of someone else's work surely there should be some sort of balance.
    As far as I know "fair use" is only applicable in America.
