Shepard Fairey Sued By AP for Obama Image

Obama Poster

Okay…I’m not even going to comment on this now…here’s an article on it and a ton of comments on the Huffington Post…I’ll just say, wow, I can’t believe so many people think the images are quite different–they look nearly identical to me, one is just painted, the other is a photograph.  And wow, if a court decides taking any photo and simply painting the image in the photo is enough to constitute enough transformation so that there is no copyright infringement–well gee, there are a bunch of famous photos I’d like to put on some T-shirts to sell, and anything really is fair game, isn’t it!   I’d like to know either way!
