(Reuters) – It may not be logical, but it is fair use.

A U.S. judge on Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit by Dr. Seuss Enterprises to stop publication of a “Star Trek”-themed book parodying the Seuss book “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

U.S. District Judge Janis Sammartino in San Diego said ComicMix’s crowdfunded “Oh, the Places You’ll Boldly Go!” made fair use of the 1990 Seuss book, and did not infringe copyrights of Dr. Seuss Enterprises, which oversees the author’s estate.
