Making a parody will soon become legal in the UK


When it comes to the right to take the mickey out of famous songs, movies or books, the UK has always cast envious eyes toward the US.

“If you’re a YouTube sensation-in-waiting, just gagging to unleash your parodies onto the world, what is it that you can and can’t do under the new rules? For a start, you can make a pastiche, caricature or parody, and while there’s no word on transformative works (i.e. mashups like Buttery Biscuit Base and They’re Taking the Hobbits to Isengard) we’d imagine they’re pretty safe, too”
