Parody

by jdickins Show/Hide
  1. 1 Show/Hide More Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, Inc.
    Original Creator: Prof. David Post
    Can a commercial parody be protected by the fair use doctrine? How much of the parodied work can a parody take?
    Notes:
    Rappers 2 Live Crew's wrote a commercial parody of Roy Orbison's song, “Oh, Pretty Woman,” titled “Pretty Woman” which made use of the same phrases and structure of Orbison’s work. 2 Live Crew contacted the company to which Orbison had assigned his copyright, Acuff-Rose, for permission to parody “Oh, Pretty Woman.” Acuff-Rose refused and 2 Live Crew released their work anyway. Acuff-Rose sued for copyright infringement.
  2. 2 Show/Hide More SUNTRUST BANK v. HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY
    Original Creator: jdickins
    What is required for a book to be protected as a parody by the fair use doctrine?
    Notes:
    This deals with the retelling of Gone with the Wind, The Wind Done Gone, which tells a first-person narrative from the perspective of Cynara, the illegitimate daughter of Planter, a plantation owner, and Mammy, a slave who cares for his children.
  3. 3 Show/Hide More Salinger v. Colting
    Original Creator: jdickins
    When is an unauthorized sequel protected by the fair use doctrine and/or considered a parody?

    This case deals with the book 60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye by J.D. California which was written to function as an unauthorized sequel to J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye.
