The Future of Fair Use After Cariou v. Prince
Sonia Katyal, Joseph M. McLaughlin Professor of Law
The presentation will examine the future of fair use and important questions related to the intersections of art and copyright raised by Cariou v. Prince. The case concerns a collage called Canal Zone by well-known appropriation artist Richard Prince, which consisted of 35 photographs torn from Yes, Rasta by photographer Patrick Cariou. How much weight should a court give the artist’s “intentions” vs. the audience’s receipt of a work? How should copyright law account for the possibility of a positive market effect on appropriated materials? Could there be a chilling effect on creativity as a result of this decision?
