Is It Fair Use?

Character and Purpose: Critique

Criticism is protected by Fair Use, and a general critique using many different works may be covered if the other factors are met. General critiques receive a bit less leniency than direct reviews, however, as direct samples from the copyrighted works are less necessary to make your overall point. It's wise to limit your use of copyrighted works to only the minimum necessary to make your critical point in order to have a better claim to Fair Use.
