Abstract

Given all this attention to Kienitz, I’ve decided to step back and talk about the role that transformation plays in fair use and in copyright more broadly. In this essay, I will trace the origin of transformation as a guiding principle, through what I’ll call “expressive” transformation cases. In my next post I will discuss how the principle has more recently been applied to encompass what I call “purpose” transformation.
