Although Shepard Fairey’s civil case with the Associated Press over the “Obama Hope” image has been settled in 2011, there’s still the criminal case.  Shepard has pleaded guilty to one count of criminal contempt for destroying documents, manufacturing evidence and other misconduct in his case involving his “Hope” poster of Barack Obama.  If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of six months in prison, a $5000 fine and a maximum term of supervised release of one year.

Good luck Shepard.  Thanks to LA Times for the tip.

Great news for the art world!  A judge has dismissed copyright lawsuits between Shepard Fairey, who created the Barack Obama “HOPE” image and The Associated Press but has left a March trial date in place for related claims between the news service and companies that sold merchandise using the artist’s image.  You can read more about this exciting ruling here.  I also agree with The Worley Gig’s commentary that “there are ways to amicably resolve these types of issues without getting all Metallica-style litigious on everyone’s ass. At any rate, the ruling is good news for Fairey, whose work I am a huge fan of , and other artists of his ilk, who sometimes appropriate fair use images from pop culture in their artwork.”  You can read The Worley Gig’s comments about the ruling here.

Team Shepard!
