In brief, relying on a "fair use" defence can be perilous - depending on
the jurisdiction. There are long chapters in the standard legal texts on
Copyright Law outlining the various nuances in the both Common Law and
Civil Law jurisdictions. (Lawfully!) grab the latest edition of a text on
Copyright Law in your jurisdiction and there is bound to be at least one
full chapter on the topic. It's a very fertile area of litigation -
sapienti sat!
