Last night, Shepard Fairey and Lawrence Lessig and others gathered at a New York library to discuss copyright issues in relation to the AP suing Fairey for copyright infringement.
Today is evidently link day, so here are some links about it:
- Here’s a post about it, with a video of a great talk by Lawrence Lessig, though not the one last night. That’s still unavailable, as far as I can tell.
- And, from Wooster Collective, here’s a terrifying firsthand account of Shepard Fairey’s actual arrest at Boston’s ICA, including suspicions of the filthy politics that led to the bizarreness of it.
Finally, here’s Shepard Fairey on The Colbert Report last month, discussing how he’s a “patriotic criminal” and how he doesn’t protect the copyright on the poster in question. Guards!
