Fair Use is particularly important in academic settings where students, faculty, and researchers are able to legally incorporate copyrighted materials, without permission from the author (but with appropriate attribution, of course) in slide shows, book reviews, and classroom lectures.
To learn more about when Fair Use allows you to use copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder, check out:
Code of Best Practices in Fair Use (from the Association of Research Libraries)
Copyright: Fair Use (from the University of California)
Fair Use Checklist (from Columbia University Libraries)
