 Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, Inc. (1993)
The fact that 2 Live Crew's parody sold as part of a collection of rap songs says very little about the parody's effect on a market for a rap version of the original, either of the music alone or of the music with its lyrics.
As to the music, this Court expresses no opinion whether repetition of the bass riff is excessive copying, but remands to permit evaluation of the amount taken, in light of the song's parodic purpose and character, its transformative elements, and considerations of the potential for market substitution.
Because we hold that a parody's commercial character is only one element to be weighed in a fair use enquiry, and that insufficient consideration was given to the nature of parody in weighing the degree of copying, we reverse and remand.

 Robert Christgau: Columns: December 1967
They parody every popular music from thirties-croon to Supremes (no Supremes fan could entirely survive the sight of three hairy freaks prancing from mike to mike in a perfectly hideous and hilarious version of "Baby Love") and their music is the antithesis of soul: wooden beat, trite riffs, inane lyrics.
But musical parody can satisfy for just so long, and Zappa's tastes in social satire are less than subtle--the "plastic people" he is always sniping at are an unoriginal and rather stationary target.
His apparent motivation is distaste for everything except modern classical music and the alienation effect.

 Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music (1994) [92-1292]
Acuff-Rose Music, Inc. sued 2 Live Crew and their record company, claiming that 2 Live Crew's song "Pretty Woman" infringed Acuff-Rose's copyright in Roy Orbison's "Oh, Pretty Woman." The District Court granted summary judgment for 2 Live Crew, holding that its song was a parody that made fair use of the original song.
In reversing, the Court of Appeals held that the commercial nature of the parody rendered it presumptively unfair.
Justice Souter wrote that the appellate court "erred in holding that 2 Live Crew had necessarily copied excessively from the Orbison original, considering the parodic purpose of the use." Justice Anthony M. Kennedy filed a concurring opinion.

 US - Commercial Parody Upheld as Fair Use
Accuf-Rose Music, Inc., the United States Supreme Court held that commercial use of a parody of the famous Roy Orbison song, "Oh, Pretty Woman", did not, in and of itself, prevent the parody from constituting fair use under 107 of the Copyright Act.
Accordingly, the Court remanded the case to the district court for a determination of whether 2 Live Crew's copying of the opening bass rift was "excessive" in light of the parodic purpose of the work and the otherwise "transformative" nature of the parody.
In order to be effective, the Court pointed out, it is usually essential for a parody to appropriate the "heart" of the parodied work, in this case the distinctive opening bass rift of the Roy Orbison version.

The Council of Trent banned the parody mass (and the use of secular material in masses), but without much lasting effect.
