I wouldn’t count on the fact that they are now invoking fair use as a promise that they’ll change the approach to their own content in the future.

The last couple of years have seen too many shrill claims about fair use for my liking – as if it’s become a bucket into which to pour complaints arising from proprietary colonization occuring elsewhere (term extension, DMCA etc) – but cases such as Outfoxed fall so clearly within the exception that any attempt to prevent them should be the basis for counter claim. Hit the bully on the nose!

Supposing Outfoxed weren’t a hatchet job? (Is it really?) Even if it were, suppose someone else manages to make a better, non-hatchet documentary of Fox’s bias. How would Fox feel about fair use *then*?
