Downfall Parody

Brad Templeton, the chairman of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, created the following parody in response to the takedown notices the studio has ordered on some of the numerous parodies there are of this particular scene from the movie Downfall (Der Untergang).

For more information on the making of this parody and some of the issues surrounding 'fair use' see EFF: When Fair Use Is Fairly Difficult and Brad's Ideas: Hitler Tries a DMCA Takedown.

Canadian copyright law does now allow for parody in its fair dealing provisions.
