This is from a similar discussion on another list. Maybe some of the exceptions will be useful? BTW--I meant to say "intellectual property" infringement in relation to the trademark comments, not "copyright". Sorry. In any case my error opened up another productive discussion.

There are 10 exceptions/limitations to exclusive ownership in the US Copyright law. At least one attorney I heard recently speaking at the Seattle Freelancers dinner, indicated there were 29 exceptions. In any event these are for different issues in different circumstances, such as libraries, education, digital broadcasting, sound recording, etc.

One can find these in Chapter 1 of the USC Title 17 at this site:
