I'd take a look at what the ol' Wikipedia has to say:

I actually used to work for a online retail site and the legal limit at that point was 30 seconds.   That was also what was provided to us from numerous music sample providers and I am confident that 30 seconds is the right amount.  AND, it does look like Wikipedia agrees.
