These are actually just a couple I've come across in my reporting, so give *them* the books, if you like them:

Rick Boucher: Fight for your freedom to whistle in the shower!

And on behalf of Ruben Safir, co-founder of New Yorker's for Fair Use: "The tremendous problem we face is that we are becoming sharecroppers to our own cultural heritage -- we need the ability to participate in our own society."

Also, what about focussing on using the phrase: Fair-use protection, not copyright protection. That recasts the debate.
