Follow-up on Fairey

Shepard Fairey Strikes Back, Sues AP Over 'Hope' Image | Media and Technology | AlterNet: "Anthony Falzone, executive director of the Fair Use Project at Stanford and the lead of Fairey's legal team said:

There should be no doubt about the legality of Fairey's work. He used the photograph for a purpose entirely different than the original, and transformed it dramatically."

This is a critical issue for artists who rework found images, which is to say most artists in this media saturated society.
