that fact would be deemed irrelevant and could not be used in determining or considered in the ruling of the courts. Recall the difference between a crime and a tort. Based on these two cases, analyze and discuss whether artists should be held liable for the actions of their fans. Pahler v. Slayer is a business crime of targeting minors with the advertising of explicit content (Rogers, 2012), and Bailey v. Eminem is a defamation tort arguing the artist slandered his name causing damage to his reputation. The artist should never be held accountable for a fans actions, unless they specifically say go and target or directly influence the actions of another person. It is assumed that a reasonable person knows the basic difference between right and wrong and that the individual is responsible for their own actions. In both cases the artist is found not to be the influencing factor in any resulting consequences that may have happened.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
