Memo on the Use of Screenshots
by Greg Lastowka on 11/09/13 06:56:00 am   Expert Blogs

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

I asked Christopher Ogino, who was my summer research last year, to look into the question of whether screenshots of video games used in academic publications would constitute fair use under United States copyright law.  His conclusion was, generally, “yes.”  I’m posting his Memo here because I believe there is some confusion about this issue and I haven’t found much else available on the Internet that addresses the fair use issue so comprehensively.
