Fair Dealing

This research paper is written about the fair dealing defence in the U.K Copyright, Design and Patent Act of 1988. The research paper includes an introduction to the fair dealing defence, its history, and how it was introduced for the first time in the UK. I explored sections 29-30 of the Act.

I have also looked at the cases brought in front of the English courts in relation to the fair dealing defence and I compared that to the situation in U.S. I concluded my research paper by saying that the approach adopted in the U.S. is far more developed than that of the U.K. since the act does not assist English judges in determining whether the use of the copyrighted work is fair or not.
