This interpretation of 107 (by use of the emphasis) points out the need for
consultation with an attorney. An attorney could explain what is meant by THE
FAIR USE OF A COPYRIGHTED WORK and TEACHING. In the context of copyright law,
these terms have specific meanings. Also, it is a mistake to interpret
copyright law based on a single paragraph, which may or may not apply in the
given situation.
