[BKARTS] To Chris.



Chris:

>>That's why I believe any copyright suit brought
against an artist using trademarks in acts of parody is, well,
odiferous.<<

You still don't get it. A COPYRIGHT suit could NOT be maintained against one who
used a TRADEMARK in an act of parody.  A TRADEMARK suit might be brought, but
given  the case law's concern for the First Amendment, it is likely that it would very difficult to
hold such a user liable for infringement.
