Shepard Fairey ripped off my picture first

Ed Nachtrieb took a picture of two Chinese soldiers in Beijing. That iconic image was used by Fairy in a poster. The comment thread is fascinating.

This is a discussion of copyright, citation, ethics and what exactly original artwork is. Fascinating and no doubt all of us have to keep an open mind going forward.
