LOL on Fairey. Been advocating he is a moron and this seals the deal. Saw the post come through Twitter. Even though I believe he is fair in use, I kinda hope he gets spanked.
Here’s something fun to ponder – if he painted the poster (canvass + oil) using the AP photo as reference there would be NO QUESTION that he was in fair use.
I think that the fact that he slipped a photo into an Adobe product and hit a few buttons is why he is getting nailed.
As he should?
Technology makes our lives easier but this should not provide an easy way out.
Confused and laughing. It could be worse. Thx T!
