Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man, there’s just so much information in the U.S. Copyright Code. Why can’t find a way to make it easy for people to understand and remember?” I know I have. Then I found this. I don’t advise that you use it as your definitive source for copyright info, but if you’re in need of a good laugh or if the real thing is a bit daunting, it’s a great place to start.
So, would you call this a derivative work, or a parody? It doesn’t really matter much anyway since Title 17 is a work of the U.S. government and thus is exempt from copyright protection, but, you know, always trying to stimulate your collective minds.
Talk is cheap. Good writing is priceless.
