Abstract

Every year, it seems, at least one major copyright case brings to the fore the complexity, importance, and unpredictability of fair use analysis. That case this year? Shepard Fairey v. The Associated Press. In this podcast, we dig into the Fairey fair use fight, talking with Mark Lemley, who at the time of this recording represented the artist; Dale Cendali, who represents the AP; and, for some outside perspective, Ken Richieri, Senior Vice President and General Counsel at the New York Times. UCLA law professor Doug Lichtman hosts.
