Parody Can Be Fun AND Commercial

Copyright Violation Or Parody? Commercial Speech? Courts are sometimes contradictory. Al Yankovich where are you? One opinion

We love it! Does anyone remember the Annie Leibovitz photo of Demi and the Leslie Nielson parody? This was taken to court. Annie has no sense of humor. We wonder if she will go after the producers of the above new movie with Jessica Alba. She was the photog for John and Yoko .The result of The Nielson photo case here.
Images such as Grant Wood's American Gothic almost immediately enter our cultural consciousness and become iconic. Annie Leibovitz will be known for years to come for having remarkable talent but for also being in the right place at the right time.
