“HOPE” springs eternal

From the inception of the curious g blog back in February 2009, I have been really fortunate.

Whenever I get blocked or stuck for a new post, I can always rely on the “Shepard Fairey fair-use-HOPE-poster-copyright-infringement-on-AP-photo case” to supply a small infusion of intrigue and, oh yeah, law. I feel attached to this case and it seems only natural to see it through to the end.

As of 28 may 2010, Fairey v Associated Press does not disappoint. Now the “Judge Urges Resolution in Use of Obama Photo:”

From the NYTimes:

“On Friday, Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York said in a hearing that “whether it’s sooner or later, The Associated Press is going to win” the case.”
