Pirate Disney panties that scream fair use


Today in my ongoing series of photos from my travels: these pirate Disney panties on sale in a Shanghai street-market that seem to have been designed by someone who wishes to invoke fair use by emblazoning them with PARODY DESIGN. Link

  1. “parody” design is a common phrase among Japanese and Chinese product manufacturers – products may include keychains, wallets, purses and panties, too!

    “parody” basically means “knock-off”

  2. This Cory dude gets around. Wasn’t he in Italy, like, yesterday? Or are these flicks saved up, then posted in spurts? Fun stuff.

  3. I believe in this case fair use allows one to purchase and wear said panties, but soiling the panties is an infringement of IP (no pun intended).
