7th Circuit grants summary judgment in "obvious fair use" case, Brownmark Films v Comedy Partners

Hat tip to Barry Werbin, Esq., of Herrick, Feinstein, for bringing this decision to my attention. -R.B.

In Brownmark Films v. Comedy Partners, involving the "Canada on Strike" South Park episode, the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit granted summary judgment for the defendant, on the ground that the episode was obviously a parody entitled to the fair use defense.
