Art Imitates Art: “Pictures Generation” Artist Richard Prince and Fair Use

Posted: Thursday, June 28, 2012 | Posted by Lizbeth Hasse, Esq. | Labels: , ,

The Fair Use doctrine allows others to use copyrighted material without the copyright holder’s permission under certain circumstances. It sets limits on the exclusive rights copyright law grants copyright owners: the rights to reproduce, distribute, perform, display and make derivative works. Originally a judicially created exception[1], Congress incorporated the fair use exception as a defense into the Copyright Act of 1976 under section 107.
