Genie Parody copyright laws set to come into e (14) Parody copyright laws set to come into effect 25 Oct 14


"The only, and essential, characteristics of parody are, on the one hand, to evoke an existing work while being noticeably different from it and, on the other, to constitute an expression of humour or mockery," the EU rules state.

Since when does mockery have to be funny?   
Political cartoons are usually mocking somebody or something but rarely laugh-producing.
I hope they mean that a judge would rule on whether the parody was either funny OR mocking.
