CIR filed an appeal on behalf of Irina Chevaldina, who was sued by Raanan Katz for her use of a small photo of Katz to accompany a blog post that she published about Katz.  Katz found the photo unflattering and purchased rights to it and then sued Chevaldina for copyright infringement.  CIR is asking the Eleventh Circuit to uphold a lower court decision that Chevaldina’s use of the photo fell within the legal doctrine of “fair use.”
