Yes, but this is a straw-man argument. The original question had to do with copying things from companies' web sites. That, it seems to me, would be copying expression. Whether such copying is implicitly licensed by virtue of putting the site up in the first place, is another matter, as is whether taking little snippets would be fair use, or whether a company would ever care under the circumstances.
