Yeah. He's been saying this for a while and I always find it funny because it's far from the truth.

He has to create the hype to sell this garbage.... If looking for something regarding the fight this weekend check out Tristan Eaton's fight poster he was commissioned to do by Showtime. At least its an original design of his, drops tomorrow.

I really don't understand how brainwash can get away with using iconic photos and throwing paint on them with no license, while Shepard Fairey who actually altered an image was sued.

Always wondered how licensing works with a print that has Marilyn, Elvis, Ali etc faces on it. Does anyone know if MBW would have to have a licensing agreement with the applicable estates?
Thierry has no idea what licensing even means... that's why he gets sued for copyright infringement and loses:

2011 sued by photographer Glen Friedman

2013 sued by photographer Dennis Morris

2013 sued by estate of photographer Jim Marshall

ironically, MBW tried suing the Life is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas for copyright/trademark infringement and was not successful in doing so :lol:
http://cdas.com/life-is-beautiful/

and the company that puts on that festival is now seeking nearly $2 million dollars in fees from MBW since his suit was thrown out in court by a judge:

Seriously though. Are flippers really making money off of Mr. Brainwash new releases these days?
