Transformative use of the day, fair use for me but not for thee edition
At this link, the Graphic Artists Guild shares news about its opposition to fair use and to "piracy," ... and a remix video demonstrating what Hollywood thinks about graphic designers, taking clips from multiple movies and shows to make its points. Particularly nice in juxtaposition with this article, for which the pull quote is "Degen summarized the importance of copyright to creative professionals as, 'If you create it, you own it. If someone wants to use what you own, there needs to be a discussion.'” Unless, of course, they're portraying graphic designers.
