Transformation and Fair Use

Richard Prince from Canal Zone
French photographer Patrick Cariou sued Richard Prince for using/appropriating his photographs from his series Yes, Rasta circa 2000 as the basis of Prince's Canal Zone series circa 2012. The courts recently found that Prince had "transformed" Caribou's work to make a new more contemporary statement hence declaring it "Fair  Use".
