As some of you might have heard, penwiper's site, lord of the peeps was shut down for alleged copyright violation.

Now, as you might also know, this is utter bull. As we ALL know from 2 live crew and Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, Inc. (1994) , PARODY IS FAIR USE.

As a professional designer and an artist, I'm pretty damned pissed. There is absolutely NO QUESTION that LotP is a parody site, and therefore falls under fair use as defined by the Supreme Court So I have a little present for penwiper which you're all welcome to take if you like~

mary goo says parody is fair use

PLEASE spread the word, and feel free to link to the graphic if you like.

Happy Easter, everybody!
