Copyright is a form of intellectual property protection provided by the laws of a country. Copyright protection is available for original works of authorship that are fixed in a tangible form, whether published or unpublished.

When we’re using any of the copyrighted content we have to use the content fairly this is known as “fair use”. Fair use is any copying of copyrighted material done for a limited and “transformative” purpose, such as to comment upon, criticize, or parody a copyrighted work. Such uses can be done without permission from the copyright owner. In other words, fair use is a defense against a claim of copyright infringement. If your use qualifies as a fair use, then it would not be considered an infringement.
