UA vs. Daniel Moore

The saga continues.

Something just doesn't sit right with me when a state-owned, taxpayer-funded institution like the University of Alabama harangues a private citizen for depicting public events (i.e. UA football games) in his artwork. If there was ever a case where the "fair use" doctrine should apply, it seems to me that this should be it, since the University is essentially an agent of the State of Alabama and is therefore directly limited by the free speech provisions of the federal and state constitutions. The University's lawsuit against Daniel Moore has already been a great public relations disaster. Here's hoping it turns out to be a legal disaster, as well.
