Glad to see justice done, He calls him self an artist, but don't artists have an imagination of there own to come up with something original and fresh rather than copy other peoples work and add one item and say it's there's.
Too many people in the world with a lack of skill and artistic imagination that have to copy someone else's work because they themselves lack in those departments.

This is clearly a correct decision, and I hope it isn't overturned by appeals.

It's wasy to knock Prince but in some of the early works, like the Marlboro man images, appropriating commercial images decontextualising them and placing a different meaning on them clearly had artistic value in the same vein as Warhol's Campbells soup prints or Brillo boxes for example.

In the Cariou case he doesn't seem to have added anything useful. Lets hope the photographer gets some worthwhile compensation from this.
