NEWS///ART & POLITIKS///SHEPARD FAIREY DISCUSSES ASSOCIATED PRESS OBAMA ART LAWSUIT ON NPR
Our man SHEPARD FAIREY has been under a lot of scrutiny in the public eye since he opened fire on the ASSOCIATED PRESS last month with a lawsuit refuting a claim by the AP to the rights to his guerilla OBAMA campaign artwork because his portrait of the then-president elect was based on a photo allegedly under the domain of the photo agency. Leading the charge for the protection of “fair use” rights for all artists, Fairey is prepared to go all the way in his legal battle with pro bono support from the STANFORD LAW SCHOOL FAIR USE PROJECT. Last week, NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO‘s TERRY GROSS interviewed Shepard extensively on the subject, which can be heard in its entirety (25 minutes) HERE.
