All is Fair (Use) in Love and Copyright with Stephen Zralek
Bone McAllester Norton’s Stephen Zralek will speak at the January 29th meeting of The Copyright Society of the South on All is Fair (Use) in Love and Copyright. In his presentation, Stephen will look at several close cases and let attendees judge for themselves as to whether the infringement should be permitted under Fair Use defense. The presentation is interactive, comparing side-by-side examples of original works with later works where the original author claims infringement. Examples include a comparison of Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind and The Wind Done Gone by Nashville author Alice Randall; a comparison of the original Roy Orbison’s “Pretty Woman” song and 2 Live Crew’s version of it; and a comparison of more recent works created by contemporary photographer Patrick Cariou and appropriation artist Richard Prince. The presentation will explore recent decisions from within the Sixth Circuit and around the country, examining the four factors that courts examine when determining fair use.
