Legal EULAs, and whatever nonsense they may contain, are legally binding in the US. Have a great weekend!

I have a copyright question. In the US system.

If I buy a magazine and tear out page 17, then give it away to someone, letting them know I kept, burnt, ate, whatever page 17.... is that legal?

If you call it an artistic move and/or claimed to have made it better or something, I think it might be, but no one would ever prosecute for it...
Hopefully.

Fair use should be much broader than it us currently interpreted in the courts.

I release all the stupid stuff I do under free licenses because copyright lasts _too long_.
I'd be fine with normal copyright if it only lasted 25 years like it originally did.
