Whether Fox can do that and legally show the clip in an episode is a matter for the experts to argue

No, they used it for commercial gain, and that's totally illegal. Sue the shit out of them.

If you write a dissertation in pen, does the pen company own the rights to your work?

All OP has to do is call it Art. Then he can sue them.

He does not have to own the rights to Double Dribble. His use of the game and system as props in his video about Double Dribble exploits would 100% be considered transformative fair use.

His problem would be if Fox claimed the same thing about his video. That would be a bit more difficult to prove as they used his video work in it's entirety within their video work. It would be interesting to see if a court thinks that their audio commentary added enough to be transformative and qualify as fair use.

Not necessarily, if it's a short enough clip then it might be fair use.

It's not.
