Associated Press has filed new court papers in its case against artist Shepard Fairey, and contends that in admitting his deception over use of an AP photo of Barack Obama he lied again.
The AP also believes that Fairey has now concocted another story -- that he was “mistaken” -- to spin those bad acts in the best light possible to the Court and the public. “It is simply not credible that Fairey somehow forgot in January 2009 which source image he used to create the Infringing Works, which were completed only a year earlier in January 2008,” today’s filing says.
