Here’s a great copyright law issue.
Did the poster artist infringe on the copyright of the owner of the photo? Is this protected fair use? What does it mean to have a copyright in a photo of a public figure? Should the protection allowed be less than for other images? If so, why? Is there a public interest in the use and dissemination of those images that weakens our interest in protecting copyright? If so, do we end up with fewer such images?
The Associated Press wants to be paid for the use of its photo. What do the Law and Society folks think? Students? Everyone else?
