A Major Chord in the Song of Artistry: The Supreme Court’s Warhol Verdict


Sartouk Moussavi, a partner at Thompson Coburn LLP, highlighted the implications for the burgeoning AI space, particularly for AI-generated works that rely on one or more copyrighted pieces. Though new expression may not conclusively decide the fair use factor, it still forms an essential piece of the puzzle.

Yet, amidst all these potential challenges, Moussavi offered a beacon of hope, reminding us that “a fair use defense is still ultimately a fact-driven analysis which aims to balance competing interests and must be considered on a case-by-case basis.”

Final Notes

As I wrap up, remember that this decision, while significant, doesn’t define the future of fair use or artistic creation outright. It’s just one more verse in the ongoing symphony of copyright law, leaving us all wondering what the next notes will be.

In the spirit of Prince, let’s hope the song of creativity continues to play on, loud and clear.
