Cariou v. Prince Decision
United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit
We conclude that the district court applied the incorrectstandard to determine whether Richard Prince's artworks make fair use of Patrick Cariou's copyrighted photographs. We further conclude that all but five of Prince's works do make fair use of Cariou's copyrighted photographs. With regard to the remaining five Prince artworks, we remand to the district court to consider, in the first instance, whether Prince is entitled to a fair-use defense.

Appropriate Standards in Appropriation Art? Cariou v. Prince Decision Garners Relief but Fails to Provide Substantive Guidance
Center for Art Law
One of the most closely watched copyright cases in the legal and contemporary-art worlds was settled last week. On Thursday, April 25, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit overturned the 2011 District Court decision, holding that the contemporary artist Richard Prince's appropriation of thirty images from the photographer Patrick Cariou's book Yes Rasta for his own Canal Zone series was protected under the fair-use doctrine.

Second Circuit Victory for Richard Prince and Appropriation Art
Center for Internet and Society, Stanford Law School
The decision in Cariou v. Prince confirms the principle that a use can be fair even if it doesn't criticize or comment on the original work. While it's far from groundbreaking to say that commentary or criticism isn't necessary for fair use, it is a principle that hasn't been applied before in the visual-art context.

Judicial Activism and the Return of Modernism in the Cariou v. Prince Decision
Clancco
The Cariou v. Prince decision was handed down last Thursday. I have struggled with what to write primarily because I have been shocked into a catatonic state. How two intelligent minds could draft such an epic disaster is beyond any form of comprehension. One would hope that after eleven months of deliberation and critical analysis we would have been given something more than twenty-three pages of judicial poetry.

UK Museums Must Pay for Images Where Copyright Is Unknown
Art Newspaper
Museums will have to pay upfront for orphan images, or images whose copyright owners cannot be found, after an amendment to the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill to limit proposals was narrowly defeated in the House of Lords. Several members condemned the government's plans, which require holders of orphan works to pay for copyright licensing on use, rather than when a rights holder steps forward.

How Copyright Drives Innovation in Scholarly Publishing
Copyright Alliance
Today's public-policy debates frame copyright policy solely as a "trade off" between the benefits of incentivizing new works and the social deadweight losses imposed by the access restrictions imposed by these (temporary) "monopolies." I recently wrote and published a paper, "How Copyright Drives Innovation in Scholarly Publishing," explaining that this is a fundamental mistake that has distorted the policy debates about scholarly publishing.

In Sobel v. Eggleston, Limited Edition Is No Limit to Subsequent Editions
Center for Art Law
It took less than a year for Judge Deborah A. Batts to rule in Sobel v. Eggleston, dismissing the plaintiff Jonathan Sobel's claims with prejudice. In summary, Sobel purchased eight of the defendant William Eggleston's photographs between 2008 and 2011. The plaintiff's belief that the works were part of limited editions supposedly led him to pay a premium for them. Eggleston, however, created reprints of these images different in size, medium, and production date from the set purchased by the plaintiff. Subsequently, according to Sobel, the monetary value of the original limited edition was "substantially diminished."
