Ana‑Maria Barbu** 


The article attempts to analyze the current EU legal framework on parody and to discuss its interpretations as these have been issued by CJEU and EctHR. The readers are welcomed to examine the concept from a double perspective: as an exception to copyright and as a dimension of the freedom of expression. Remembering that Member States have implemented differently the parody defense, the author proposes an EU reform on the matter, which would fully harmonize the national approaches and eliminate the fragmentation on the internal market.
