Re: Obama campaign artist--copyright infringement??
I always thought to be on the safe side, you either use your own reference photos or get permission to use a photo. I figured it's always safe to assume that anything published has a copyright and you should always ask permission before using the photo as a reference, especially if you are selling. Couldn't this artist have asked for a photo of Obama from the campaign staff, or just written to AP about getting permission? That would have saved a lot of trouble.
