Agreed... I personally avoid using anything I am not completely sure of, 
which is limiting, and sucks, but probably keeps me safe. When I asked 
Dave Slusher about using short audio clips he said it falls under fair 
use. He's got radio experience, is a follower of Creative Commons, and a 
smart guy, so I trust what he says. Of course that still doesn't give me 
the confidence to assume I know what constitutes fair use.
