Is It Fair Use?

Character and Purpose: New Meaning

Transformative uses of a copyrighted work have increasingly been granted Fair Use protections in modern cases, even when the use is commercial. To be transformative, the Court says that the new work must "alter the original with new expression, meaning, or message". The degree to which your work transforms the original and gives it new meaning both determine the strength of your defense in this factor.
