Key words..how the evidence gets presented...its a cloud and the ability lies within the humans presenting the case.
Laws *are* straightforward. People, however, are not as straight forward as they could be, at times.

The judge's (or jury's) interpretation of _facts_, in a given copyright
case, will depend on how the evidence gets presented, but the _law_ is
actually quite consistent and pretty easy to understand, in this matter.
