->> The bulk of this is a non-story: man sentenced for graffiti. *yawn*

As Ken stated, however, it's the last two paragraphs that are relevant to us, and it's nothing that we didn't already know:

"In a separate case, Fairey and The Associated Press have sued each other over the "Hope" poster, which Fairey's lawyers acknowledge was derived from a photo taken for the AP.

The AP has said his uncredited and uncompensated use of the image violates copyright laws. Fairey says he didn't violate copyright law because he dramatically changed the image."

"From the Associated Press"
