if you put something on line where the students need a password to get 
in then the constraints are minimalized (no one cares). without this, 
can't be done

> A quick question, especially for those in the USA. I'm in the closing stages of writing a book on The Waltons and am writing about fans, and specifically fan literature. I was hoping to quote some poetry posted on a forum by a fan. She has claimed copyright on the works and my request for her permission to quote short passages in my book has been declined. Where do I stand insofar as fair use is concerned now that permission has been refused: does fair use override such a refusal so far as very short passages are concerned or does the refusal establish an absolute prohibition on quoting?
