  Parody: Fair Use or Copyright Infringement
Parody, as a method of criticism, has been a very popular means for authors, entertainers and advertisers to communicate a particular message or point of view to the public.
Since copyright law prohibits the substantial use of a copyrighted work without permission of the copyright owner, and because such permission is highly unlikely when the use is to create a parody, it may be necessary for the parodist to rely on the fair-use defense to forestall any liability for copyright infringement.
The courts have continually struggled with parody cases when ascertaining whether a particular parody falls within the parameters of fair use or is instead copyright infringement.

 FAQ about Protest, Parody and Criticism Sites -- Chilling Effects Clearinghouse
UDRP decisions have gone both ways on whether a protest, criticism or parody site is confusingly similar when a domain name consists of the trademark and another word such as "sucks." The most important factor seems to be whether or not the domain name owner is using the site for commercial purposes.
If the domain name owner's site is being used to criticize, protest or parody the trademarked entity or its owner's products and/or services, the panel will probably find that the domain name owner has a legitimate interest in the domain name.
Answer: Parody is a usage of a mark that pokes fun at the mark and does not confuse the public as to the source of the usage.

Parody is distinct from satire in that it alludes to and comments upon the work itself, rather than using the work to make some general statement about the world.
For the purposes of copyright law, the nub of the definitions, and the heart of any parodist’s claim to quote from existing material, is the use of some elements of a prior author’s composition to create a new one that, at least in part, comments on that author’s works.
Parody needs to mimic an original to make its point, and so has some claim to use the creation of its victim’s (or collective victims’) imagination, whereas satire can stand on its own two feet and so requires justification for the very act of borrowing.
