No, international copyright law is provided for by the Berne Convention of 1886. Most nations accept it. Among many of the exemptions and exclusions that were allowed is the use of copyrighted material for teaching. Fair use is a descendant of the Statute of Anne of 1709, enacted by Great Britain. It has since existed in common law but the US first officially recognized it in its copyright laws. Many other countries have since implemented laws regarding fair use.
But you are correct in that countries are free to define it as they want either more or less liberally.
