    Let's assume that I'm talking about a private, non-public website (password protected) for a select audience. If I capture various still video frames of a given TV show, am I protected under fair use doctrine?

    Anyone know where I can find more info on this kind of situation?

    This has nothing to do with adult websites or video clips or anything along those lines.

    Thanks!
