Dhillon v. Doe

EFF has urged a federal court to dismiss a politically motivated copyright lawsuit.  The case started in April 2013, when California Republican Party Vice Chairman Harmeet K. Dhillon sued an anonymous blogger over the use of a five-year-old campaign photo in a critical post on “The Munger Games” website – a site dedicated to criticism of donor and current chairman of the Santa Clara County Republican Party of Silicon Valley, Charles Munger, Jr.  However, the use of the photo is clearly allowed under the “fair use doctrine,” which ensures that copyrighted works can be used by others for purposes including criticism and commentary.
