AllMusic Review by

Using The Letter U and the Numeral 2 as its foundation, Fair Use uses the same documents and material but goes further in depth, adding far more material. It raises a number of issues that one would expect to be raised by the poster boys of copyright infringement: What is public domain? What qualifies as parody? What, ultimately, constitutes "fair use" under the copyright laws? Although the subject matter and the reams of documents are really a bit weighty for those only casually interested in the subject, those who care will find it a substantial and interesting read.
