Is fair use really fair?

Based on what I have seen, and read. I feel as if fair use is still too restrictive. The fact that only certain amount of a material can be used, and only if it doesn’t take away from the commercial value of it, still leaves  too much margin for an error.  The law should be that as long as your not just, reproducing the work and calling it your own. There should be no problem.
