Update: In response to a request from the Gneeral Counsel's office at U.S. News, Dan Markel has pulled the advance copy of the Top 100 law schools in the 2007 U.S. News rankings off of PrawfsBlawg. He notes:
I think there's a good claim of fair use for the amount that we reproduced of USNews' rankings. That said, we're not interested in staking a claim on this issue; I recently had a conversation with the nice folks in the General Counsel's office of USNews and I'm complying with their polite request to take the materials down in exchange for their assurances not to pursue the matter further with us.
Orin Kerr blogs about the fair use aspects of the situation, with extensive commentary.
