This just in: Fairey lied – it was un-fair use

More headlines for Shepard Fairey, and finally an apology. As many of you know, I’ve been following the “fair use” debate between Shepard Fairey and the Associated Press (AP). It seems we have a stunning turn of events.

Read Fairey’s mea culpa. Falsifying information is definitely a deal breaker when trying to uphold and expand the fair use laws.
