Blog post: Fair Use: The Foundation of Jon Stewart’s Success

Jon Stewart
In this blog post, Jonathan Band talks about how Jon Stewart was able to use Fair Use to use clips in his commentary.  As Band says:
But for fair use, Stewart’s rebroadcast of these clips would be willful copyright infringement, subject to statutory damages of up to $150,000 per clip.
You can read the entire blog post here and it is a worthwhile read, whether you like Jon Stewart or not.
