The Supreme Court ruling was important but is just part of the story, and just one part of this case.  

June topic: Warhol v Goldsmith and a look at Fair Use

  • Review the Supreme Court verdict.
  • After Lynn Goldsmith had reached out to the Warhol Foundation regarding possible the licensing of her photo, they sued her first. How is that possible?
  • How will this verdict affect that lawsuit?
  • How might it affect other cases?
  • Does this case affect other cases when famous artists appropriate a photographer's work?
  • How does the Registration of Copyright affect the outcome when you have been infringed?
