An intellectual property attorney at a large New York law firm turned 40 and had a midlife crisis. He resigned his senior partnership and began to travel the world in search of enlightenment.
While in India, he heard about a holy man, a guru, who had been sitting on the top of a mountain in deep meditation continuously for a very very long time. The former attorney went to the top of the mountain, sat down in full lotus position across from the guru and began to meditate.
After several days the former attorney couldn't stand it any more, opened his eyes and said loudly to the guru: "oh great Master, what is the meaning of life?"
The guru then opened his eyes and said:
"life, schmif, what I want to know is, what is the meaning of 'fair use?'"
