New cover of The Stranger "inspired" by Time

New cover of The Stranger The latest cover of Seattle alternative weekly newspaper The Stranger is a straight knock-off of the recent Time magazine cover of novelist Jonathan Franzen. The Stranger profiles novelist Tao Lin. This is the kind of homage/inspiration we like!

    Is this considered inspiration? parody? are there any copyrights on TIME's cover line? It is obvious that they wanted to [literally] replicate the cover, as opposed to being "inspired" to do something simliar, but different. I'm on the fence about this one...
