This is the section of the law dealing with exceptions. Fair dealing does
not apply to public performance in academic institutions if that is indeed
the use your instructor intended. You can argue until you're blue in the
face that what goes on in class is criticism or review, but that's not the
legal interpretation. Fair dealing academically only works for research or
private study.
