Fair Use: A Narrow Exception to Copyright Infringement in Thailand

Informed Counsel

The original concept of copyright law is to protect the author from the unauthorized exploitation of his or her original work. To this end, the public at large may not be able to have access to or exploit useful information protected by copyright. To strike a compromise between the rights of the author and the needs of the public, the doctrine of fair use has been gradually developed. This article discusses the fair use doctrine and its application in Thailand.
