In a closely-watched case involving artist Andy Warhol, the Supreme Court’s opinion refined its fair use approach, emphasizing the importance of using existing works for a new purpose. SPN joined an amicus brief to explain the value of fair use for libraries and archives. In the end the court’s opinion left fair use as we know it intact, and the SPN Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Software Preservation remains a vital go-to resource for the community.
