|Eddieblz||With the onset of photo manipulation programs and being able to get any type of picture needed off the internet copy and imitation is the wave of the future. We all need to get used to it. I've seen some of my stuff pop up on goggle. Just posting in these forums, photo bucket and having our own web sights opens the door.|

|Jeff|| http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Lichtenstein |
Could Roy do his thing today? ...Heres a guy who is considered one of the greats, who said ""The closer my work is to the original, the more threatening and critical the content. However, my work is entirely transformed in that my purpose and perception are entirely different. I think my paintings are critically transformed, but it would be difficult to prove it by any rational line of argument". He discussed experiencing this heavy criticism in an interview with April Bernard and Mimi Thompson in 1986. Suggesting that it was at times difficult to be criticized, Lichtenstein said, “I don’t doubt when I’m actually painting, it’s the criticism that makes you wonder, it does.”
I would say we can breathe a sigh of relief that he didnt get sued - didnt worry about getting sued - just did his thing.

|Jeff|| Paparazzi /pɑːpəˈrɑːtsi/, /pćpəˈrćtsi/ (singular: (m) paparazzo Italian: [papaˈrattso] or (f) paparazza) are photographers who take pictures of athletes, entertainers, politicians, and other celebrities, usually while they are going about normal life routines. |
Serious question here. Are Papparazzi artists? ..Should they have complete ownership and control over the images of people they sneak up on?
If Jerky can sneak a photo of Beyonce and Jay-z's baby in a bathroom at the restaurant, he gets $500k. (seriously)
...and If I manipulate the photo and draw it, Jerky can sue me because in the eyes of his attorney, I stole from him. ..
Is it possible to steal something that was originally stolen?

Here is a famous manipulation of an existing photograph that there was an interesting fight over.
The Southern District of New York (SDNY), in March 2011, held that Prince's works were infringing. At that point, the Cariou v. Prince case received significant attention, because the SDNY ordered that Prince's unsold works, and Rizzoli's catalogs, be impounded and destroyed. The SDNY in found that the works were not transformative, in part because Richard Prince did not claim to be "commenting upon" the original works.
Prince, whose works often sell in galleries for many thousands of dollars, appealed to the Second Circuit. The case was of high interest to the art world, which largely favored Prince's position, and to the photographic community, which largely favored Cariou's position.
In April 2013, the Second Circuit reversed the SDNY's decision, finding that most of Prince's works were indeed "transformative" to a "reasonable observer" and therefore fair use. In particular, the Court found that the lower court erred in requiring that the appropriating artist claim to be commenting on the original work, and found works to be transformative if they presented a new aesthetic. The court found 25 of 30 works to be transformative fair use under its standard, and remanded the case to the lower court for reconsideration of 5 of the works under the Second Circuit's new standard. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cariou_v._Prince

I think it's pretty cut and dry. |
Would this image exists without the existence of the original photograph? No, not like this.
Did the artist profit from the work that he made from the existing photographs manipulation? I don't know that much about it. But if yes, then the photographer is entitled to at least some of those profits. If the photographer actually copyrighted his work with the copyright office then he gets way more weight in the courtroom.
But I do think that a photographer shooting this caliber of star should expect that artists may create derivative works.
