According to Wikipedia, Fair use is "limited use of copyrighted material
without requiring permission from the rights holders, such as use for
scholarship or review." Brazilian copyright law have only a few subjects
that authorizes utilization of copyrighted works with no previous permission
request (you can try a Google translation from [1], in the section "Capítulo
IV Das Limitações aos Direitos Autorais", "Art. 33" and "Art. 41" to read
more about it)

softwares have specific laws)
