Justices Search for Middle Way in Warhol-Prince Fair Use Fight
Nicholas O'Donnell was quoted in the article "Justices Search for Middle Way in Warhol-Prince Fair Use Fight," published by Bloomberg Law on October 17, 2022.
The article discusses the ongoing Supreme Court case between the Warhol Foundation and Lynn Goldsmith, which is said to be driving significant new copyright fair use guidance.
Nick was quoted in the article multiple times regarding the controversy. “The whole point is: give people a sense of what they can and can’t do. It would be catastrophic to say the only way to find out if you added a new message is to go to trial,” he said.
"If it required expert testimony to determine the level to which meaning or message has been altered, in practical terms it’s impossible for people in real life who are creating visual art.”
