: : 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.
: Dear Dan,
: My gut say its all right but I would not want to be held responsible if that is wrong. The situation would have to be reviewed as the book is written (maybe).
: If you expect to find a publisher to publish the book, the chances are that the publisher will make this determination before publishing.
