Of course, not matter how fuzzy you try to make it there's still wiggle room, so you get a second law (DMCA) written which makes it impossible for consumers to even attempt fair use.

I think that, had they realized that at some point, more than 50% of all business communications would directly connect to copyright law ('cos hey! Just by reading this, you're making more than a dozen copies of it on various servers!), they'd've defined "fair use" a bit more precisely.
In the proposed changes, "non-consumptive copies" should include "makes copies on various servers in order to get it to readers."

With all this talk about RAM, and such, have their been serious legal cases based around the transmission of copyrighted material on servers, in RAM, etc.? It seems that something similar was always an issue, for radio transmissions of music, etc. Is this an issue of serious concern these days?
