In a case that demonstrates the principle of fair use, a parent cites a case in which his or her child complained of being shared a toy. The parent wants to limit use of the toy, but also allows the sibling or visiting neighborhood child to play with it. However, the child's use of the toy is "unfair" and the parent is in violation of fair use.
