Ask me anything
The AP and Shepard Fairey finally settled. The sides agreed to disagree. There will be a private financial settlement. And the AP is going to “collaborate” with Shep to make the Obama Hope poster part of a collection, along with Shep doing more work with other “AP photographers”. This is all BS. The AP just wanted money and publicity because the Obama Hope poster blew up and is an icon now. They came out on top in this deal because now they get Shep to make more posters with their photos so they can get more publicity and what not. Whether Shep wanted this collabo or agreed to it just to end the lawsuit is irrelevant. He can now focus on the art and move on.
