There are four factors that help qualify a work as protected under the fair use provision of the Copyright Act. Transformative fair use is a condition under the first factor, which is the purpose and character of the work.. Works are more likely to be protected if they offer commentary or criticism, and even more likely if they do so in a transformative way, offering a new perspective or context for the borrowed work. The transformative nature of a work was established as important by the Supreme Court in Campbell v Acuff-Rose Music, Inc. in 1994. This section explores that case and others since that demonstrate the scope and meaning of transformative fair use.EDIT PLAYLIST INFORMATIONDELETE PLAYLIST
