Not So Easy (UPDATE)

I went back and forth this summer with Peter Friedman over the Gaylord postage stamp fair use case. I said it was good example of the unpredictability of fair use decisions. Friedman said that was "ridiculous." Gaylord, he maintained, was an "easy case" of fair use.

Today the Federal Circuit ruled in the case: no fair use.

You can read the decision here.

UPDATED: Friedman reacts to the decision here.
