Fair Use, Parody, Homage, and the First Amendment

On the coffee table, currently reading, or recently read:

"The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How It Changed America"
by David Hajdu

"Fair Use; The Story of the Letter U and the Numeral 2"
by Negativeland

"The Pirates and the Mouse: Disney's War Against the Counterculture"
by Bob Levin

"Student's Guide to Landmark Congressional Laws on the First Amendment"
by Clyde E. Willis

The only college course I ever got 100% on every test in was "History of the First Amendment." Thank you, Dr. Raymond Rogers (who passed away on 09/17/08) wherever you are.

Oh, and I got my fucking hair cut.
