WhatDoIKnow sends in a story about an appeals court ruling in a singular case that might have the effect of narrowing “fair use” rights for transformative uses of artworks. “The sculptor who designed the Korean War memorial [in Washington DC] brought suit against the Postal Service after a photograph of his work was used on a postage stamp. Though first ruled protected by ‘fair use,’ on appeal the court ruled in favor (PDF) of the sculptor, Frank Gaylord, now 85.”
