to me, Fair-Use means personal Copying.
I can copy a TV show with my VCR and play it
back for personal viewing at a later time.
I can create derived works of CD's,
convert them to MP3's, and burn them
to a new CD so I can play them in my car.
I'm not sure how much Fair-Use covers the
right to Distribute anything. This guy calls
it "private copying", but he actually wants
to grant low quantity distribution.
Which, in my opinion, is CC-FreeAdvertising.
