I have read all the articles about the Obama photo and I think this is a very difficult subject. I understand that there are copy right laws but I personally think that Shepard Fairey changed the photo so much I don’t see how it would be against the law to use it. I see it as if the person that took the photo is ok with it then leave it alone. I don’t feel that Shepard should be penalized for it. But if it was a photo I took for example I would probably be upset if someone didn’t ask me. I think that if the Associated Press was to get anything maybe a payment for the use but not a crazy amount of money. I also feel that taking this all the way to court is crazy. I think it is something that could be handled between lawyers out of court.
