I am using very small pieces (1-2 seconds) of video from copyrighted material (movies, television, etc.). These are being mashed up with user-generated (non-copyrighted) content and displayed/shared on the web.

Currently this is a free website with no ads, no monetizing, etc.

I believe that this falls within the realm of Fair Use. I realize that Fair Use is very gray area, but I would like a second opinion on the Fair Use aspect.

Also, I am trying to get more information on my exposure risk.
Is there anyway to structure things so I am protected?
