Doug Mirell, litigation partner and First Amendment expert, spoke to the Los Angeles Times regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling against the unlicensed use of Andy Warhol's Prince poster.


Los Angeles lawyer Douglas Mirell predicted the decision could have ramifications for the film industry: “This ruling could be extraordinarily problematic for documentary filmmakers and others who frequently rely upon ‘fair use’ as a defense for using clips of copyrighted works to tell the story.”
