Yiddish with Dick and Jane under fire

I just learned of what sounds to be an interesting lawsuit filed in Los Angeles by the owners of the Dick and Jane copyright, Pearson Education. Evidently, Pearson doesn't like the paradoy presented in this book published by Little Brown. The NYT's story from over the weekend is available here. According to the story, Pearson initially had decided against suit because it felt the book may not be commercially successful. Its views changed when the book became popular after a promotional video became available on the internet. Watch the video and read the book, then decide for yourself: Is this paradoy/fair use or not?
