"transformative."

Andrew M. Goldstein, ARTINFO - What do you think the impact of this decision will be on the art world?

Patrick Cariou - In my opinion copyright law is badly done, because there is one word in that law that makes everyone really confused, and that word is "transformative." It took me over a year to understand what that meant, it was explained to me and I didn't get it, and I don't think I'm but I didn't get it. It has to be transformed for a purpose, that's what it is, and that's what the judge is saying, and it's going to bring some sanity into the appropriation world. You can comment on the original work, or you don't copy it, or you get a license — it's a really simple thing.
