Fair use?[edit]

Can we really justify this as a fair use on Rule 34? It looks like just a plain copyright violation to me (even if the use of the characters by the artist is also a copyright and/or trademark violation). --GreenReaper(talk) 19:28, 27 June 2012 (EDT)

Well, it's Rule 34 and Rule 63, seems to fall under the US fair use doctrine regarding nonprofit educational purposes or reports, it's a parody (can you infringe on somebody's parody?), and it's not a direct "lifted" or recreation of a copyrighted piece of media. As working on the art industry, I myself don't see a problem if it's for reference or historical (furry lore) purposes - Spirou 20:32, 27 June 2012 (EDT)
