Is It Fair Use?

Character and Purpose: Review

Reviews could be protected by Fair Use if the other factors are met. In general, reviewers may take a few small fragments of the work they are reviewing in order to highlight critical points. This would include a couple of seconds of a song to highlight a particular verse, a few seconds of a movie to show a director's visual technique, or a paragraph from a novel to show the author's style.
