Fair Use too Hard to Fight For

Yesterday RedBubble took down my most popular design because Twentieth Century Fox told them it violates their IP. The design, shown below, probably does qualify as fair use because of the satirical nature of it, but it’s hardly worth the trouble of me fighting the lawyers. Even though it was my most popular design (especially in Australia for some reason), that only amounts to maybe $40 in commissions over the two years, or so, I’ve had it up. This whole situation is just an annoying fact of life.
