Ninth Circuit Confirms Embedding Remains Fair Use

The Ninth Circuit has confirmed that embedding content from social media platforms remains fair use. The court rejected a lawsuit by photographers who argued that Instagram was liable for copyright infringement because it allowed other sites and users to embed their copyrighted photographs. The court distinguished "embedding" from "linking" and stated that the content only resides at the original location, giving the host complete control. The court's decision may invite further review by higher courts.
