: I put up a parody website (http://www.geocities.com/pageanttown/index2.htm) and now the target of my parody has threatened to sue me for copyright infringement. Here is their site: http://www.pageantcity.com
I don't want to research the Fair use but my recollection is that you are not protected. There is much that can be done in parody that uses the information but not the expression of the parody.
Unfortunately win or lose you may be sued. Win or lose it will probably cost legal fees. The law can actually be fair but its use does not have to be just.
