I bought movie(s) from ITunes, and I would like to share short clips from the movies to my friends on Facebook/Line, and maybe publicly on Twitter.

How do I know whether my short clips usage falls within fair use or not ?

  • It depends also on your country of residence. Fair use is not the same in the USA and in Europe, for example. – audionuma Mar 28 '15 at 19:16

IANAL, but I'd guess that if you have to circumvent any DRM just to copy clips of the movie (which you probably do), then it's probably not OK. Try taking a screenshot of the movie playing in iTunes (ctrl-shift-3 or ctrl-shift-4 on mac). If it shows up black on your desktop, or if you get an error message, then you probably don't have rights to share it. But like I said, I'm just guessing.
