[Videolib] One last "fair use " note

I got so frustrated by the idea that ANYONE could think
"Fair Use" could ever cover an entire work that I forwarded
most of the thread to a copyright specialist I know
He felt the list had done a pretty good job dismissing this but
went on to point out that "fair use" ONLY applies to "transformative" work
that is using a PORTION of something as PART of another work and had
NO application to streaming an entire film

He suggested this link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use
and look under "Purpose and character" for the discussion of
transformative use.
