The Drag Queen Posse

  1. Suppositori 'Spaz' Spelling celebrates her birthday with friends and fans at 'Beatbox' in SoMa, San Francisco, CA.

    Use of music in this clip falls under 17 U.S.C. § 107 for FAIR USE under PARODY & SATIRE clauses.

    Id. at 581: Even satire that does not target the original work can be considered fair use if, for instance, there is little possibility that consumers would view the satire as a commercial substitute.

    Courts should not pass judgment on the literary meaning and aesthetics of
    a work: noted in Bleistein v. Donaldson Lithographing Co., 188 U.S. 239, 251 (1903):

    The Supreme Court has unequivocally held that a parody may qualify as fair use
    under § 107. According to the Court, a parody is the "use of some elements of a
    prior author's composition to create a new one that, at least in part, comments on
    that author's works." Id. at 580. Like other forms of comment or criticism,
    parody can provide social benefit, "by shedding light on an earlier work, and, in
    the process, creating a new one." Id. In other words, parodies can be considered
    "transformative" works, as opposed to merely "superseding" works. Since
    transformative works "lie at the heart of the fair use doctrine's guarantee of
    breathing space within the confines of copyright," the more transformative the
    parody, the less will be the importance of other § 107 factors that may weigh
    against a finding of fair use. Id. at 579.

    15 U.S.C. § 1125(c)(4)(B): Following First Amendment precedent, expressive works may be
    considered "noncommercial" even though they have a commercial
    purpose. "Thus, for example, the use of famous marks in non-commercial
    settings, such as parodies, consumer product reviews, and news and
    investigative reports, would not be actionable." 2 GILSON ET AL., supra, §
    5A.01[9][b]. Parodies, consumer product reviews, and news reports all
    arguably contain a commercial component, but can still be considered
    "noncommercial speech." The legislative history to the Act's counterpart
    16 bill includes a comment from then-chairman of the Senate Judiciary
    Committee Orrin Hatch, who remarked, "[t]he bill will not prohibit or
    threaten noncommercial expression, such as parody, satire, editorial and
    other forms of expression that are not a part of a commercial transaction."
    See id. (quoting 141 CONG. REC. S19306, 19310 (daily ed. Dec. 29, 1995)
    (statement of Sen. Hatch)).

  3. Brigitte sits down with us for a more personal one-on-one chat with Princessa Glam, as we interview her not more than a few days post-facelift surgery.

    Note that Brigitte had just finished healing from her hard-tissue skull and nasal surgeries not six months prior.

    A facelift was recommended for the dual purposes of: rejuvenation, and to assist the soft tissues to now conform better to the restructured hard tissue surgery that had been done earlier.

    Although Brigitte was in a lot of discomfort, pain, and is very swollen, she absolutely insisted that this be documented. We can think of fewer honest and brave persons such as Brigitte. Anyone undergoing this long, painful process owes her a small debt of gratitude for her time and honesty.
