  • So this whole hoopla over Shepard Fairey’s AP Case has gotten a bit of fuel from the man himself in a response to his detractors on his website. And the detractors come back with apparently both barrels blazing. Blam. Blam. Blam. Blam. This is shaping up to be a real showdown at AP corral. My take on it is that Fairey refuses to acknowledge the difference between “Art with social commentary” and a marketing campaign. Just because the financial beneficiary of this campaign was a political figure makes no more difference than if it was McDonalds. Actually there is a difference, McDonalds would have paid for the license on the image.
