Fair Use

I thought this would be interesting to share. I'm sure some of you have heard about it already and probably have your own opinions as artists. Shepard Fairey's Obama posters used an AP photographer's image for the basis of his idea and concept. An image that is now on posters, T-shirts, buttons, stickers, and lots of other items. An image that was found simply by "Googling" it.

One art buyer shared this article while another added this link to the copyright clearance center discussing the idea of fair use.
