    however, electronic mail and synchronous communication sites such as internet relay chat (irc) and various forms of muds (multi-user dungeons or dimensions)--sites which allow for "live" communication between users--are not protected under the copyright act. the report says:

    a transmission, in and of itself, is not a fixation. while a transmission may result in a fixation, a work is not fixed by virtue of the transmission alone. therefore "live" transmissions via the nii [national information infrastructure] will not meet the fixation requirement, and will be unprotected under the copyright act, unless the work is being fixed at the same time as it is being transmitted.
    fair use and abuse
    infringement is infringement--the doctrine of fair use doesn't negate that; it is simply an "affirmative defense." but section 107 of the copyright act plainly says:


    [t]he fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies of phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. in determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include -- (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes; (2) the nature of the copyrighted work; (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and (4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work
