Intellectual property was one of my concentrations in law school. Fair use is one of those doctrines where there is a lot of gray area. A lot of people read about the factors and try to analyze whatever case/situation they are talking about. Many times people are just plain wrong. For example, I've had "artists" argue with me that a painted copy of another piece is a "parody" and thus fair use.

In any case, an academic argument and actual practice are two separate things.
