Also, since Title 17 says that whatever constitutes infringement has to take into account how much of the whole work was used, a few pictures from a whole run of 'zines and a large website would fair on that count. Plus the fact that no one made any money off it.

    Ok, I'm telling you about the law now. [/hubris]
    I positive repped Afronaut for his post which was more specific and better, then my comment. Despite being a pro, I have to admit I've never read Title 17. These all sound like reasonable defenses, the question is how generously a federal court will construe them.

    Damn, he'd fit in there nicely.
    Add that avatar someone made of him. It's totally an original caricature, and shouldn't be a problem. . .and we all know who it is!

    In the case of copyright for images. . .would that 10% change thing apply as it does to trademarks & logos?
