Fair use hearing testimony available
House website here. Written testimony from June Besek (fair use is too big, especially with respect to Google), Peter Jaszi (no, it's not), David Lowery (music remixes and sampling etc. aren't fair use; licensing is perfect), Naomi Novik (transformative works are great and need protection; licensing is no substitute), and Kurt Wimmer (no congressional action is required even though some courts read "transformative" too broadly; licensing is better).
