Do we know what the "worst" jurisdiction's laws about this are? I know that
the UK has a much more limited "fair dealing" right. Are there
jurisdictions with even more limited rights? I think virtually every
jurisdiction has some sort of "quotation for the purposes of review"
exception, though I could be wrong. What's the worst case we actually have
to care about?
This would be a good thing to know. :-)
