    This definition does not meet the fair use test. In order to pass, the work must meet all 4 criteria. Be prepared to be dragged into court, otherwise.

    The recent Koons case is a fairly obvious and direct representation of the original photograph in another medium. It would be hard to object to the finding of a copyright violation in this case without objecting to copyright law in principle. And frankly, although this particular representation is nowhere near as grossly disfiguring as Koon's other rip-offs, I don't think that I would object if the French added a Koons specific fine for art desecration, too.

    Someone who's work was "appropriated" by Koons should have reproduced Koons' gallery version, scrawled "F**k Jeff Koons" across his text, and sold them on the sidewalk outside the gallery at the opening...

    It's a kind of genius! Not artistic...but sales and marketing genius. I looked up his net worth, google came up with a figure of $100 million. I think Koons originally was a stockbroker? I watched a documentary on him years ago, my memories are a bit vague.

    I found it amusing that he saw his wife in a top shelf mag at an Italian petrol station (just had to meet her having seen her - her beauty transcended pornography it seems), but later got fed up with her when she offered to sleep with Saddam Hussein to prevent a war in Iraq.
