I thought the Fair Use Doctrine was an actual provision of copyright law?

I believe that it's essentially an exception added into the copyright laws to make them conform to the courts' interpretation of the first amendment. Basically what they had to put in to make copyright law constitutional.
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.
