Ensure Valid Content
ASE, as an ACCME-accredited provider of accredited continuing education (CE), requires that all faculty follow the guidelines set forth in Standard 4 of ACCME’s Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education when presenting in an ASE-provided educational activity. As such, you are expected to present education that is fair and balanced. All clinical content presented should support safe, effective patient care. In addition:
- All recommendations for patient care in accredited continuing education must be based on current science, evidence, and clinical reasoning, while giving a fair and balanced view of diagnostic and therapeutic options.
- All scientific research referred to, reported, or used in accredited education in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, analysis, and interpretation.
- Although accredited continuing education is an appropriate place to discuss, debate, and explore new and evolving topics, these areas need to be clearly identified as such within the program and individual presentations. Engagement in these topics should not advocate for or promote practices that are not, or not yet, adequately based on current science, evidence, and clinical reasoning.
All sessions for ASE2023 will be delivered in person in National Harbor. At this time, we do not have an option to prerecord OR to present remotely. If you are unable to attend in person, please decline your invitation and an alternate speaker will be invited.

What is “fair use”?
Fair use is the right to use a copyrighted work under certain conditions without permission of the copyright owner. The doctrine helps prevent a rigid application of copyright law that would stifle the very creativity the law is designed to foster. It allows one to use and build upon prior works in a manner that does not unfairly deprive prior copyright owners of the right to control and benefit from their works. Together with other features of copyright law like the idea/expression dichotomy discussed above, fair use reconciles the copyright statute with the First Amendment.
What is the test for fair use?
The fair use defense is now codified in Section 107 of the Copyright Act. The statutory formulation is intended to carry forward the fair use doctrine long recognized by the courts. The statute provides that fair use of a work “for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use, scholarship, or research)” is not an infringement of copyright. To determine whether a given use is fair use, the statute directs, one must consider the following four factors:
- the purpose and character of the use, including whether the use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
- the nature of the copyrighted work;
- the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
- the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
