The Associated Press is suing artist Shepard Fairey for unauthorized usage of a photo of US President Barack Obama, which Fairey turned into an iconic art piece called “Hope.” Those who are lovers of art know that images are borrowed, improved upon or enhanced all the time and it’s really no big deal. The AP obviously feels this is a big deal and they have not dropped their ridiculous suit. To make matters even more sickening, the AP, in a gross conflict of interest, has leaked a story saying “Judges are urging Shepard Fairey to settle out of court.” Their story has spread across the internet quicker than a government created virus and lovers of art and freedom worldwide, including myself, are outraged! All I can say is turn off the news and turn on your mind!
Team Shepard Forever!
