Obama posterdispute

  1. 1. Barack Obama “Hope” Poster Austin S. Jackson D.
  2. 2. • Group 1: Attorneys for AP, arguing that Fairey violated the copyright to the photo and should be required to pay license fees.
  3. 3. A.P Statement• The A.P. said in a statement that the poster, based on an A.P. photograph taken by Mannie Garcia in April 2006, requires its permission for use of the image, and that it is seeking credit and compensation for its use in Mr. Fairey’s works.• The photo, showing Mr. Obama at the National Press Club in April 2006, was taken for The A.P. by a freelance photographer, Mannie Garcia.
  4. 4. Copyright• The ownership that copyright law grants comes with several rights that you, as the owner, have exclusively. Those rights include: – The right to reproduce the work – to prepare derivative works – to distribute copies – to perform the work – and to display the work publicly• These are your rights and your rights alone.
  5. 5. Fairey’s Lawyers Argument• They believe Fairey’s work is protected under fair-use exceptions to copyright law, which allow limited use of copyrighted materials for purposes like criticism or comment.
  6. 6. • In interviews Fairey said that it was one he had found on the Internet. Bloggers, including the Manhattan gallery owner James Danziger, pursued several leads until, according to the lawsuit, Tom Gralish, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer for The Philadelphia Inquirer, helped track down a photo by Mr. Garcia that showed Mr. Obama sitting beside the actor George Clooney at a 2006 event about Darfur at the National Press Club.
  7. 7. • “I don’t condone people taking things, just because they can, off the Internet,” Mr. Garcia said.• Mr. Fairey decided to create the image on his own before contacting the Obama campaign, which welcomed it but never officially adopted it because of copyright concerns.
  8. 8. • A.P. officials contacted Mr. Fairey’s studio demanding payment for the use of the photo and a portion of any money he makes from it.• Mr. Fairey’s lawyers said Mr. Fairey used the photograph only as a reference and transformed it into a “stunning, abstracted and idealized visual image that created powerful new meaning and conveys a radically different message” from that of the shot Mr. Garcia took. • Really, that’s your best argument, that is poor
  9. 9. Settlement Discussions• “A.P. was in the middle of settlement discussions with Mr. Fairey’s attorney in order to resolve this amicably and made it clear that a settlement would benefit the A.P. Emergency Relief Fund, a charitable fund that supports A.P. journalists around the world who suffer personal loss from natural disasters and conflicts.”
