Michigan's stand-your-ground law

(WXYZ) – Benjamin Crump, the attorney who represented the family of Trayvon Martin, will share reasons for seeking the repeal of Michigan’s stand-your-ground law Monday, April 14, at Wayne State University Law School. Martin, a 17-year-old African American, was shot dead by George Zimmerman during an altercation Feb. 26, 2012, in Florida. The subsequent trial and Zimmerman’s acquittal in June 2013 made worldwide headlines. Zimmerman’s successful plea was that he had acted in self-defense, although Martin was unarmed, and that under Florida’s stand-your-ground statute, Zimmerman had the right to do what he did. Crump, a Florida civil rights attorney, will present “Should Michigan’s Stand Your Ground Law Be Repealed? Ask Trayvon Martin,” sharing his and the Martin family’s reasons for the repeal of the stand-your-ground law not only in the state of Florida but in 23 other states, including Michigan, that have similar laws. Crump is speaking as part of his crusade to amend stand-your-ground laws around the country. The event will be from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in the Lecture Hall (Room 2242) of the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights at Wayne Law, 471 W. Palmer St. The event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided. Register by contacting Marti Knight at (313) 577-3620 or martha.knight@wayne.edu . Parking will be available for $6.50 (credit and debit cards only) in Structure One across West Palmer Street from the law school.

Fair Use Disclaimer

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Under the 'fair use' rule of copyright law, an author may make limited use of another author's work without asking permission. Fair use is based on the belief that the public is entitled to freely use portions of copyrighted materials for purposes of commentary and criticism. The fair use privilege is perhaps the most significant limitation on a copyright owner's exclusive rights.

Fair use as described at 17 U.S.C. Section 107:

"Notwithstanding the provisions of section 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phono-records or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.

In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:

  • (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for or nonprofit educational purposes,
  • (2) the nature of the copyrighted work,
  • (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and
  • (4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work."
