People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought which they avoid.
De bruger aldrig de friheder, de har, men fordrer dem, de ikke har; de har tænkefrihed, de fordrer ytringsfrihed. Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)
To those who think that the law of gravity interferes with their freedom, there is nothing to say.
Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings.
Dort wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen. Heinrich Heine (1797-1856)
“There's no free will,” says the philosopher; “To hang is most unjust.” “There's no free will,” assents the officer; “We hang because we must.”
Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)

Section 30(1) of the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 allows “fair dealing” with a copyright work for the purpose of criticism or review, provided that it is accompanied by a sufficient acknowledgement. Under the fair use doctrine of the U.S. copyright statute, it is permissible to use limited portions of a work including quotes, for purposes such as commentary, criticism, news reporting, and scholarly reports. There are no legal rules permitting the use of a specific number of words, a certain number of musical notes, or percentages of a work. Whether a particular use qualifies as fair use depends on all the circumstances. See Circular 21 and FL 102. (From the US Copyright Office FAQ.)
