Valuating copyright

I got 99 problems but copyright ain't one?  October 23, 2012 – 07:28 am
I am not valuating copyright because he got a document stating that he is Caleb Mason has written a line-by-line analysis of the second verse of Jay-Z's 99 Problems from a Fourth Amendment perspective.  It's a song I know best as the source of the title of one of Supernatural's more misogynistic episodes, but the article offers a criminal procedure take.  There's a copyright angle, of course: though a line-by-line legal analysis is a clear fair use, a non-law review might never have allowed this to see print, because of rigid limits--sometimes outright bans--on quoting songs without permission.
or authors who encounter permissions problems with overanxious gatekeepers, I recommend looking for any subject-matter specific (or close) fair use best practices guidelines. Compliance with them, as with the documentary filmmakers' guidelines or poetry guidelines, can convince gatekeepers to allow fair use, especially if you can get an outside review.
Gatekeepers worry about songs, poetry and images much more than about, say, quoting big chunks of other texts, which has helped keep analysis of the former genres limited compared to textual analysis.  This reflects not just market structures but also ideologies of authorship.  (Compare the economic value of music with that of poetry: only adding in the romantic view

Robert Fisk Interview

Two common items circulating among progressives on the Internet after September 11 have been Robert Fisk's dispatches for the London Independent and W.H. Auden's poem 'September 1, 1939.' The last stanza of that poem begins: 'All I have is a voice/To undo the folded lie.' That's what Fisk does: He uses his voice to expose falsehoods and highlight injustice and, as Auden put it, to 'exchange mess... the perspective of how many dead over how many years, the surprise to me is that we didn't see planes flying into buildings long ago.
