A copyright is a form of legal protection for original creative works, such as photos, videos, art, and music. Infringement occurs when someone uses your work without permission. An exception, however, is fair use. Examples of fair use include parody, news reporting, criticism, and commentary, and de minimis (extremely limited) use, which may not be considered infringement.
If you believe your copyright is being infringed – and fair use does not apply – please report your concerns. Only the copyright owner or its authorized representative may report copyright infringement using this form. Or learn more about reporting IP infringement.
