Great debates: What good is your copyright?
Admittedly, this is the first time Prince v. Cariou had crossed my radar. But seeing how it specifically impacts the photography, let alone broader art, world; I'm paying more attention.
In the Internet age, where almost anything can be appropriated without credit or compensation, what's the answer? Adapt? Rage against the machine? Sit it out? Determining what's "fair use" seems to be handled in the same manner as identifying what's considered obscene - no one can quite define it until they see it and even then there's no universal agreement.
