In 2014, the UK introduced a new exception to copyright that permits “fair dealing” by way of “quotation.” But what is “quotation”? Reviewing the broad array of activities that cultural commentators (eg art historians, film critics and musicologists) refer to as “quotation,” this paper argues that the new exception could cover a very wide range of expressive and transformative uses.
