UPDATE: Shepard Fairey vs The AP

My lawyers filed my response to The AP’s claims against me on Tuesday (CLICK HERE FOR SHEPARD’S RESPONSE).  It includes a dozen examples of AP photographs that consist almost entirely of copyrighted artwork from me and other artists.  Today, The AP issued a statement accusing me of “making attacks” on them.  I don’t feel the need to respond to that in detail, because my lawyer already has (CLICK HERE FOR LAWYER’S RESPONSE)

As I have stated before I am fighting the AP to protect the rights of all artists but I do want to emphasize one other important point.  I’m not accusing the AP of infringing anybody’s rights.  I’m saying everyone should have the same broad rights of fair use and free expression, and that includes The AP.  I’m not questioning The AP’s legal right to do what it does.  But I am saying they have to be consistent.  They can’t have it both ways.  If AP photographs that do nothing but depict other artists’ work are protected by fair use, then my work has to be, too, because it’s at least as transformative, creative and expressive as The AP photos we identify in my response, if not much more so. If the AP has the right to do what it’s done, then so do I.

OBEY X STEREO X MFG T-SHIRT/POSTER

Today OBEY CLOTHING dropped the OBEY x Stereo limited poster and tee designed by Matt Goldman (MFG) and Shepard Fairey. The initial poster offering sold out immediately, but we set a few aside to be sold on the  STORE section of OBEYCLOTHING.com.  In addition to the poster release we’ve also dropped 100 t-shirts featuring the same sleek design. As with the original release the poster will likely sell out fast, so head over to the STORE section before they’re gone.

“I’m sending this along to you because this is a current event, and some of you may not realize its timeliness or importance: Shepard is due back in court in Boston next week.”

20 Year Retro Series Set

This large format print series was created to commemorate the 20 year anniversary of OBEY.  The series was first released in Feb but only to a selected few for the opening of Shepard’s 20 year Retrospective at the ICA Boston.  Shepard chose to revisit these images, from the 98 – 2000 era, due to their popularity but adding a more refined look to them with the replace of the OBEY Orange for a Metallic Gold.  This fine art print series will go sale on 4/2/09 at noon.  The series will initially go on sale only as a set with a few individual prints sold separately later in the day.
