Hey Beyoncé, take your top off

March 14, 2011 § Leave a comment

Beyonce with this Tee is practically just like Naomi with her blood diamonds.  Ewww.

I can hear you saying  Why Oh Why? Well SURPRISE, I’m going to tell you Why Oh Why. It’s because journalists in the US are as exploited as diamond miners in Sierra Leone.

A couple of years ago artist Shepard Fairey used The Associated Press’ photo without permission to create THE image, and BOOM was sued by the news agency for violating copyright. But now the Associated Press is in for more. They argue that using the image on T-shirts is wilful violation of the copyright of the photo, plus using it for free DEVALUED the work of journalists (AP filed lawsuits against Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom and Zumiez seeking unspecified damages). BBC News says, BBC News knows. Seriously, Beyonce, how could you.
