This has been noted here before, but it bears repeating. It may be that all
you need to know about fair use and related issues can be found in a comic
book, "Bound by Law," published by the Center for the Study of the Public
Domain at Duke Law School. Or perhaps it's just a good place to start. Free

About a dozen years ago, the advice given by the late, great Lingua Franca
magazine was-- after a long article detailing advances in copyright law-- was
to just do it, just use it and don't worry about anything. You'll probably
get away with it because 'fair use' allowances cover most academic or
non-profit educational work.
And by the time they catch up with you, what are they gonna do? The internet
is different because it is ongoing and easy to monitor.
