Also, facts have shown that unless your a multi millionaire you can't get copyright justice, an example of this would be how copyright law even failed Barrack Obama RE his HOPE image. Learn more
you trolliing me? obama has nothing to do with it at all. the law didnt fail obama. i even quoted where its written black and white. not sure why its so hard for you to accept reality. maybe start reading the post instead of just replying? one final time extra special since you are extra special too :


shepard fairey appareantly was thinking "hey i can take whatever i want - just do whatever i want with it and claim fair use!" (like this is literally what you suggested) and ( surprise ) obviously he could not.

haha so the guy was fined $25,000 but he made millions off it.
he also raises thousands & thousands every year for the foundation ART FOR LIFE online auction, the primary annual fundraising effort that helps support thousands of underserved New York children but you wont read about that in the news, then you ask yourself who's the bad guy?

anyway you may call me a troll but your clearly missing the point so lets end the conversation it's not going anywhere.

oh it already ended a few posts ago since you just brought up irrelevant stuff the last posts- i merelely was polite enough to give you a chance to correct or further explain yoursel which you chose not to~ you are not trolling you just have a problem to admitting being wrong but thats ok for me i dont mind. you can babble all you want but my initial post was correct and you even proofed it with actual events lol. doesnt have to do anything with bad or good guys.. im glad you finally realized that tho.

edit : also you dont know the deal he made with the copyright owner of the original piece so even thats just your fantasy lmao.

I've always have contacted the photographer. Never had a problem. Except when you start talking politics.
