Why I love Wikipedia

Wikipedia is basically designed for people like me who love obscure yet pointless trivia, especially those that make good stories.

"In 1994, [Mark] Russell found himself unexpectedly allied with the rap group 2 Live Crew, when the group was sued for copyright infringement for their parody of the song 'Oh, Pretty Woman.' The case went to the Supreme Court, where Russell and the members of 2 Live Crew argued that song parodies were protected under the Fair Use act. The Supreme Court agreed, and ruled in favor of Russell and 2 Live Crew."
