Legal Jesus

And on the third day, he blawged again.

From “David Letterman said on Wednesday night that his lawyers had contacted Joaquin Phoenix to request compensation for the use of Late Showfootage in his fake documentary, I’m Still Here. According to Letterman, Phoenix’s lawyers had initially justified its inclusion as “fair use” of copyrighted work because the movie was a documentary. Since the movie’s actually fake, Letterman said, Phoenix should pay up. Letterman was probably joking, but could he have a case?
