I'm not completely up on this case but thought it would be of
interest to some listfolk.
CAMDEN, N.J. -A New Jersey company may not make its own online
trailers for Disney and Miramax movies after a federal judge ruled
that trailers, like movies themselves, are protected by copyright
U.S. District Judge Jerome B. Siandle wrote in an opinion dated Aug.
7 but delivered to lawyers in the case this week that trailers are
not included in the "fair use" statute that allows critics, scholars
and producers of parody to use quotes and clips from writings, music
and other media.
