The US Supreme Court opinion on Campbell v. Acuff-Rose established fair use analysis for decades, a case involving 2 Live Crew’s parodic Pretty Woman version of Roy Orbison’s Oh Pretty Woman. Fair use became a talismanic defense used differently in different jurisdictions for decades until Covid-era US Supreme Court decision Google v. Oracle America, a fair use case involving software and API.
The US Supreme fair use analysis in Google did not establish fair use precedent for decades like the Campbell case did or even for a year; within a matter of months in 2022 the US Supreme Court accepted certiorari on Warhol Foundation v. Goldsmith, a fair use case claimed by the Warhol Foundation on his series of prints based on a photograph by Goldsmith of musician Richard Prince posed in her studio before Prince’s iconic fame and controversial suicide was memorialized in a magazine cover featuring the Warhol image, which led to the photographer’s discovery of the use and ultimately a lawsuit in which she was the named defendant.
