This comment argues that fair use analysis should be reorganized from a disjointed four-factor morass into a straightforward two-part analysis that incorporates and clarifies the purpose of each of the four factors.

The comment then applies this process to a potential fair use defense for Richard Prince's The Catcher in the Rye.
