The legal doctrine of fair use, as provided for by the United States law, authorizes the use of copyright material to some specified limits even without acquired permission from the holder. Fair use intends to create a balance of interests between the public and copyright holders, in the general use or supply of original works. Fair use doctrine, as copyright infringement claims defense, allows for a specified use which may otherwise be thought to be copyright infringement (Weinreb, 2010).
