    “the law hasn’t accepted two principals that are well understood in the art world. The first is that a change in medium is transformative.”

    So I can print photographs of every sculpture Koons ever made on t-shirts and sell them without so much as a nod in his direction? I mean, that’s *doubly* transformative and therefore fair, right?
