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

and look under "Purpose and character" for the discussion of
transformative use.
