Yes We Cannabis
Lisa Jack, who snapped this picture of Barack Obama in 1980 while they were students at Occidental College,
is a wee bit irritated that NORML repurposed it to create this poster:
Fair use satire? Or theft of intellectual property?
I’m not an attorney and intellectual property law is particularly complicated. NORML is engaging in political satire, for which the courts have tended to grant substantial leniency, but also selling the posters for profit, which tends to limit fair use claims.
Regardless, it’s amusing that NORML has prominently placed a copyright notice on its creation.
