Phoenix, I don't normally respond to your messages, but I will to this one.

While I am not an attorney, my husband is, and I've had him go over this area of law with me several times. Very likely, what we do with videos would be considered fair use, as would be much of what fan sites in general do.

However, I believe that most of the outrage that I - and likely Donna, though I won't speak for her - is the lack of warning. We have been praised by cast & crew for these videos. They have been up for easily over a year now. They had plenty of time to give warning that they believed that their copyright was being infringed.

I will make no stand on the legal issues, mostly because I do not feel that this is the proper forum to discuss this without further information about the specific instances of infringement that Warner Bros. is alleging.
