    What is the meaning or message communicated by visual art? The Supreme Court is squarely presented with the question of how to interpret visual art in Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. v. Goldsmith. Precedent asks whether the secondary use of material is “transformative” in that it “adds something new and important.” However, visual art presents challenges that prior, text-based works did not.

    This panel explores the unique posture of visual art in fair use, examines broader doctrinal and policy issues, and considers the shift in the current Supreme Court’s conceptualization of copyright law.
