If I wanted to write a book that is a collection of short phrases grabbed from internet bulletin boards/chat rooms to put forth a theory, does that fall within fair use? I'm not clear as to what falls within the definition of short phrase, which are supposedly not copywritable. Do comments in chat rooms or posts on bulletin boards carry any copywrite at all? Thanks for any help you can offer.
