92. April Fool’s Day! Let’s Talk About Parody

Play

We always thought if you make a funny version of a pop song it was considered a parody. Turns out it’s WAY more complicated than that. Our awesome listener, Ben, sent in the legal definition of parody and explained how it all works.

For detailed information about the difference between parody and satire, visit Ben’s blog, Technically Legal.
