      *The Berne Convention on Literary and Artistic Works* /Artical 10/

      "(1) It shall be permissible to make quotations from a work which has
      already been lawfully made available to the public, provided that their
      making is compatible with /fair practice/, and their extent does not
      exceed that justified by the purpose, including quotations from
      newspaper articles and periodicals in the form of press summaries."

      "Fair Use" (US) = "Fair Practice", the definitions of what is "Fair
      Practice" change from county to county but not the concept itself. This
      concept has been stretch in many places to include for example 'time
      shifted' copies of broadcasted copyright information.

      United States = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use
      The Commonwealth = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_dealing

      I agree that I was not being specific enough when I used "Fair Use" and
      had assumed that this was the generic term.
