Either the US law is strange or you need to talk to a copyright laywer
urgently. Under European copyright law fair use must be for criticism
or review. You could quote a few lines of code to point out the
problems in it but using it for its intended purpose is a definite
infringement and leaves you at the mercy of the copyright owner...
