Amicus brief in visual meme case

While I’m at it, Chris Sprigman and I filed a brief on behalf of IP professors in a case against Fox News for republishing a 9/11 meme on a Fox Facebook page, with commentary on the order of “Never Forget”–the owner of the copyright in the photo of firefighters raising the American flag at Ground Zero, which was part of the meme, sued.  The brief argues that a meme of this sort, reflecting popular reaction to important events, is fair use.
