1994: In Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that parodies of an original work are generally covered by the doctrine of fair use and do not require the copyright holder's permission. The case revolved around a parody of Roy Orbison's song "Oh, Pretty Woman" done by the rap group 2 Live Crew.
