Professor Faden is not doing anything illegal and should not be accused of copyright. Just because he used a bunch of movie lines doesn 't mean he stole them to make money or to try and ruin disney.

The video Professor Faden made was also made for comedy reasons another way you can stay in fair use. Now should 've Professor Faden asked disney if he could use their work, most likely but that doesn 't make it automatically illegal and sued for copyright.
