That statement is not entirely true, though I believe that it applies in this instance.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use
While I would never rely on wikipedia as a single, creditable source, it is a decent place to begin.

A common misconception about the use of copyrighted material and the concept of fair use:
"[i]If you're selling for profit, it's not fair use.[/i]
While commercial copying for profit work may make it harder to qualify as fair use, it does not make it impossible. For instance, in the 2 Live Crew—Oh, Pretty Woman case, it was ruled that commercial parody can be fair use."

While MagicDuel does not use the music as a parody, there is at least one instance where a group who did not own the rights to specific materials was still able to profit from it. I'm sure there are many other examples out there.

I see neither an argument nor a debate, but simple statements of facts that are relevant to what has been mentioned previously.

Works under Creative Commons licenses are different, depending on which specific license it is. Much less restrictive. The text of wikipedia itself is under one of these, as you can see at the bottom of the page.
