Looks to be a sensible application of the Copyright law in this case.

I posted it because it was interesting to me, not because I thought that it was the wrong outcome. Not everything is fair use, as some seem to think...

Didn't mean to imply you thought otherwise. It's just that I read enough Court decisions to be well aware that they are not always reasonable or even fair applications of the actual law. My remark was meant to convey mild surprise at how balanced and thoughtfully consistent with the law that ruling is.
