I'm not sure if it has been established how and if fair use applies to
licensed information.  I think that there is an assumption on the part
of some that the license over-rides copyright, and an assumption by
others that fair use over-rides the license.  I believe if a contract
has a clear statement of uses that deny "fair use" uses a fair use
defense might not stand in some (most?) courts unless it is really
minimal.  This is the reason why many think a revision to the copyright
law needs a more explicit statement of fair use in the electronic
