The abstract asks: Why is the use of copyrighted materials in the United Kingdom referred to as a process of 'fair dealing', while in the United States it is referred to as a process of 'fair use'? Because of the universality of communications and the ever expanding use of the Internet to facilitate the free flow of published expression between readers in the United Kingdom and the United States, works have comingled their respective copyright notices that are attached to them. At first glance 'fair dealing' and 'fair use' might appear to be synonymous terms having the same meaning in law, but they are not. But then, neither is there a simple explanation as to what either term means. To find an answer it is necessary to reference a supreme written law to understand both their parameters and penumbras defining national law on copyrights, as modified by international treaties.
