Hi everyone --
I've attempted to reduce our previous set of examples to display the
entities and communications of interest. (I included the original
examples just for reference.) I hope this takes things in the right
direction -- If these need further refinement please let me and Dean
know. Thanks.


1. Alice, a music critic, publishes reviews on her own Web site. There
is no fee required for access to the site, and Alice attracts enough
readers to have attracted the attention of record company executives.
Alice's reviews always contain excerpts from the work under review.
This week she is reviewing the latest release from a band whose last
four albums she has panned. After listening to this new album, Alice
knows that her review will be critical. She knows that seeking
permission to sample portions of the album will be fruitless, so she
simply extracts what she needs and links the streaming audio files to
her review.

1. Alice
2. Any visitor to her web site

A. Alice tells Alice she can excerpt relevant portions the musical
recording. (Note that it is central to the example that Alice does not
seek permission from the original issuer of the rule set that she
B. Alice tells any visitor to her web site (see (2), supra) that he can
listen to the excerpt.

2. Professor Carole has decided to put several textual and multimedia
works from her personal collection on digital reserve for her history
course this term. Each of her students must have access to these
artifacts for the term of the course, in several popular formats. They
will have the ability to include excerpts of these works in their term

1. Professor Carole
2. The students in her class

A. Professor Carole tells Professor Carole that she can convert the
relevant works from their initial format to her format of choice.
B. Professor Carole tells her students that they can use excerpts of the
works that she makes available. (Professor Carole and her individual
students would probably define specific excerpts, which Professor
Carole would then explicitly authorize.)

3. A non-profit school for the blind owns a Braille printer. The school
uses this printer to reproduce excerpts of an electronic version of the
biography of an important political figure for some of its students.

1. School administrator
2. The electronic version of a book in viewable character (i.e.,
non-Braille) format
3. Braille printing device
A. School administrator tells school administrator that he can print an
excerpt of the book in (2).
B. School administrator can repeat (A)  N times, for each of the N
students in the class.
