well yeah and there was that

So some magic organizers from Belgium want to have Shawn Farquhar to lecture over there. So they look for a suitable picture to put on facebook. And what do they upload? The picture I uploaded many years ago of Shawn that I edited with my mad photoshop skillz. Turns out it's the first picture that shows up when you google the magicians name.

Yeah, well... it looks like the Vancouver Sun owns the rights to that picture. I wouldn't be confessing copyright infringement in an open blog.

Unless you want to go down that road where a slight modification of someone else's work is OK?

(Sorry to be so harsh, but I make my living as a freelance writer. Copyright and plagiarism is a hot button for me.)

I think that it may fall under the parody laws - if it's parody, all bets are off.

Oh no, here is Brian Brushwood revealing the invisible deck to the public. See the complete loss of wonder on the spectator's face at the moment of reveal ...
