Case Study 2: Statement of Fair Use

It is my belief that hosting a copy of the base Instagram image set in its entirety in a zip on a GitHub repository linked to the Data TRIKE website is in accordance with fair use. The purpose of the project is research into better ways of presenting data in scholarship. The purpose of hosting the base dataset alongside the data transformations is to provide an educational example of the choices made in collecting and working with the data. There is no anticipated effect of this use upon the potential market for the images. Hosting these images in zip form will not divert viewers away from the @nycgov Instagram account.
