Re: Obama campaign artist--copyright infringement??

Here is the hypocrisy, "In 2008 Shepard Fairey sent an artist, Baxter Orr, a cease-and-desist letter that threatened legal action after Orr had created, distributed, and sold a parody of Fairey’s widely known Obey Giant poster".

I like his images, but the fact is he does steal other artists and photographers images and then claims fair use because he slightly alters them on photoshop. They don't fit fair use at all.
