I'd like to use a caricature of a monopoly card as the cover for a short story of mine. I have altered significantly the look of the card, changed some of the wording and caricatured the monopoly man to suit the story. How much would it have to be altered to be considered safe from prosecution or harrassment do you think. The card is an integral part of the story.


  • Which jurisdiction? "Fair use" and related exceptions to copyright vary wildly from place to place. – Mark Sep 11 '19 at 22:57
  • "How much would it have to be altered?" - It would have to be altered at least so much as a court would find your use to be fair use or fair dealing. – Brandin Sep 16 '19 at 7:17
