Frankly, I think most of these don't follow the letter of the law, and
I am not sure if there would be much of a practical problem if we
quoted a few bars of Ravel.  AFAICS the worst that could happen is
that they would force us to take out that part of the manual.

The problem with copyright law is that it is so complicated that
realistically noone is able to follow the letter of the law, and
everyone is forced to figure for himself what the spirit of the law
