Guidelines
Several guidelines have been published to help navigate the often murky waters of copyright, and especially fair use. Though they can be helpful, it must be remembered that they are just guidelines. Courts are not obliged to consider them when ruling, though adherence to the guidelines may be helpful to a defendant.
