copyright issues regarding Obama Hope poster
Here's an interesting piece from lawyers at Stanford about the right of an artist versus another artist: a photographer, regarding the use of a photo as a base for a poster. A poster that became very famous! What do you think? Was the photographer ripped off? Is the image different enough for the artist to claim there is no copyright infringement? Personally I ask the photographers for permission to use their work.
