"Pacific Standard Magazine has a really great article by Noah Berlatsky,
looking at how copyright is stifling artistic criticism. Much of it
focuses on a recent paper by John Tehranian, whom we've written about
before. The paper is called Dangerous Undertakings: Sacred Texts and
Copyright's Myth of Aesthetic Neutrality -- and focuses on how aesthetic
judgments about the value of works almost always applies in copyright
cases, which is a bit dangerous when it comes to art, criticism and free
speech."

Very unfortunate interpretations of copyright law in the US.

Cheers,
