    Re:

    " But really, fair use has continued to be expanded since it's legal creation, not contracted."
    aaaaaaand no citation. Not suprised.

    "Nobody is shooting holes in it, rather it is being claimed as a defence for everything under the sun, and failing in many of them."
    Interesting that you don't address whether or not those defenses could be accurate and fair defenses... just that they're losing. And you also don't go out to state that the defenses are being denied on correct and fair interpretation of Fair Use... after all, we've seen over the last few months that many judicial entities are interpreting the law in what could be considered 'questionable ways'. Without citations to back up your claims, Iím going to hang my hat on this side of the pole. Itís just as reasonable as yours.

    So, is Nina trying to say that Fair Use is bleeding on the floor? Maybe, maybe not. Is it clear, to those of us who feel that Fair Use is being shot down out-of-hand, that it is not as formidable a protection as it once was (and should be)? Apparently.

    "Once again, Nina preaches to the choir. A few giggle, anyone with a brain dismisses it for the propaganda it really is."
    ZZZZZZOMG! You mean Nina drew a political cartoon which expresses her opinion and posted it on her website which is probably viewed by those who share that opinion!?!?111!?!?!??!11111one!!2

    Nina! You evil, dastardly, devious, subversive mind! Propaganda?! Sounds like something the NAZIS would use!!!! YOU MUST BE CHANNELING SCHWEITZER!!!!!!!!one!!!o!!!n!!!e!!!

    crap. broke the exlaimation button on my keyboard. Well, AC, I hope I successfully illustrated how foolish that last part of your opinion [sic] was.
