Simon,

Fair Use ONLY applies to educational or personal use. If you're a commercial entity, or an employee or agent of a commercial entity, or are using the copyrighted material in a commercial product (including a Web site, newsletter or anything else you're selling)--you are liable for all copyrighted materials. I've been down this road a thousand times with corporations. There is plenty of case law to illustrate the ability of copyright owners to *liberally* nail companies for copyright infringement. Here are jumping off sites for the intellectual property case law.
