Copyright fair use?

In the US aren't there "fair use" rules governing the use of copyrighted
items? For instance, you obviously can't upload an entire TV show to
youtube but I thought you could upload clips that are less than a certain
length. For some reason I was thinking that 10 seconds and under was
considered fair use. Does anyone know if that's true?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use seems to be a nice introduction to the
topic.

Why didn't I think of searching Wikipedia? Looks like some light reading
for this weekend. Thanks, though, I do plan on looking over it. I'm
really curious if my clip was in violation of copyright or not.

Doesn't youtube make money off of advertising? If so, I don't think the
fair use would apply. Fair use is for personal, instructional or
reference type scenarios.
