Submission + - Fair Use?

S-4'N3 writes: "I am a Canadian composer who has been hired to supply background music to a medical instructional video for a surgical procedure (the details of which would make you cringe). I have been planning on releasing the music under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike license while giving the producers of this video written consent to use this music in the specific video they are currently producing. While this is a professional video where people are actually paid for their work, it occurs to me that the instructional nature of this video may place them in the "fair-use" category. If they were to produce another video for a different procedure, would they be able to re-use the music I am providing and cite it as "fair-use" or does the fact that they are paying to have these videos produced constitute a "commercial work"?"

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
