What do you think this does to the value of those Obama prints and other works he puts out?

+1

No one thought Fairey was a saint anyway and the source pictures are pretty much identical if you crop Clooney out. It isn't like Fairey is running for Pope or Attorney General. It's unfortunate that the Fair Use Project feels it is necessary to back out, but life goes on. I'm over it already.

and a hypocrite!....Hating people that buy his posters only to resell for a profit. In Fairey's "ideology" it is ok to profit from anothers art, but not ok for another to profit from his art?



HYPOCRITE!
hope you did not bump your head when fell of the truck

he has been using "borrowed" pictures his whole career, and he usually pays the AP for the photos but did not in this case

the issue no is not so much that he used a photo but instead that he did not pay and now he lied
mmmm Beer :pint:

who gives a fudge...the photos were probably almost identical...I don't see how this is significant at all...I don't see why he needed to apologize for this....


Shepard fairey is the Barack Obama of this Art print fudge....any little thing he does 'wrong' gets overplayed....the haters love it, because they get a chance to spend their day talking about him....
