I am afraid that the fact that the Hollywood Reporter was a commercial publication and that the still was "miscredited" seem to have nothing to do with this decision. The court ruled that there was no " fair use" and that Feiner as the owner had to grant permission for the image to be used. While I think this desision may have terrible impact on the use of stills in both academic and commercial works, I must also confess that as a distributor I am somewhat pleased that Feiner was able to go to court and protect his rights. For the most part the academic community has always claimed " fair use" for anything up to and including running films on closed circuit systems and dubbing videos of anything they want to use. Most rights holders do not have the time or money to go after this so it goes on unchecked as " fair use". I doubt the Feiner case will cut back on anything but the use of stills in publications but I hope it will give the academic community something to think about regarding the use of copyrighted material.
