Andy Warhol, Prince, and the New Supreme Court Term (Podcast)

Sept. 22, 2022, 8:22 PM

With the new US Supreme Court term set to start Oct. 3, the “Cases and Controversies” podcast returns with a deep dive episode on a big copyright dispute over Andy Warhol images of Prince.

Orrick partner Mel Bostwick joins Bloomberg Law hosts Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin to discuss Andy Warhol Foundation v. Goldsmith, which is set to be argued Oct. 12.

The dispute centers on whether Warhol prints of a Prince photo changed original work’s meaning. Bostwick, who submitted an amicus brief in the case, says this is an opportunity for the justices to “put some more meat on the bones” of the test courts should use when determining whether permission is needed in copyright cases.
