Is It Fair Use?

Market Impact: Large

If your use of a copyrighted work has a large and predictable negative impact on the copyright owner, that presents a hurdle to finding Fair Use. However, the court recognizes that a scathingly negative review can have a bad market impact, but those are still protected by Fair Use, so this one factor alone won't necessarily make the court side against you. Although, because a large negative impact will make a lawsuit from a copyright owner more likely, you will want the other factors to be persuasively on your side.
