By these extremely liberal interpretations, which are very popular among the non-content creating public and business sectors, almost nothing can be considered infringement. The most prominent examples of the "transformative" claim include Buzzfeed's creation of viral top ten photo lists using stolen content and the Richard Prince "appropriation" cases: https://petapixel.com/2017/07/27/ph...-suit-richard-princes-instagram-art-go-ahead/ Our collective input and voices will likely be needed to reverse this trend, particularly in the passage of the CASE act (Copyright Small Claims).

This is of course very expensive to the photographer bringing the suit. I can't stress enough how important it is to make your voice heard: http://copyrightdefense.com/action If this trend does not change, it would be adviseable to take all of your work offline and only post tiny thumbnails.
