I noticed that recently section 30 is changed. It seems that with the new terms, it will be easier to become "fair dealing".
I am not sure about the meaning of term c. How to understand "the extent of the quotation is no more than is required by the specific purpose for which it is used"?Copyright in a work is not infringed by the use of a quotation from the work (whether for criticism or review or otherwise) provided that—
(a)the work has been made available to the public,
(b)the use of the quotation is fair dealing with the work,
(c)the extent of the quotation is no more than is required by the specific purpose for which it is used, and
(d)the quotation is accompanied by a sufficient acknowledgement (unless this would be impossible for reasons of practicality or otherwise).
For example, if I quote some short clips which are extracted from BBC documentary "Empire" in a non-commercial documentary talking about the history of industrial revolution in British, is it a fair dealing?

According to the explanation on the UK gov website, I understand if it looks "reasonable" to quote, it should be fine. For example, the clips are very short and not offend the copyright owner's marketing profit. The clips are very related to the history I want to talk about. And credit and attribution should be added. Besides, the final project is not for sale or commercial usage.
