Your probably right.  I have a suspicion that any "fair-use" will soon 
be outlawed when it comes to digital media if the big corporations
with their $$$ continue to have their way.  Fair-use will be only what
the media producer declares it to be, usually zilch, to the long-term
detriment of our civilization.

I'll repeat my request anyway, in the hopes that the Videolan team
will take the high ground.
