What is Copyrightable, What is Fair Use, How Much Transformation is Enough?
This episode of Legal Lucidity is an update on recent changes and trends in copyright law.

Here we are talking about recent cases, including Google vs Oracle, the Katy Perry "Dark Horse" case, and the case about Warhol's Prince silkscreen.
