AP Sues Artist Over Image

Larry Gustafson, former Dallas Justice Department lawyer turned professional photographer and blogger has an interesting post on his site. The Associated Press is suing the artist who created this now-famous poster of Obama from a copy-righted photo. 

Gustafson raises some interesting parallels. "Appropriation of another's art is common and may be how art evolves and grows. Think of Warhol's Marilyns."

Given the recent debate on my own blog about knock-offs, I'm curious what you think about this, especially if you are a photographer or artist. Leave your comments at the end of this post.
