It's actually better to have a weak artistic piece when arguing aspects of law. Since the law should apply to all works, good or bad, you don't want to be distracted by the merits of the work.
Think of all the landmark cases about copyright and fair use that were set by 2 live crew. We have them to thank for the Supreame Court's ruling on parody. We have them to blame for the awful, awful parody that caused the case in the first place.posted by captaincursor at 2:03 PM on May 25, 2000
