Photographer Patrick Cariou has won his copyright-infringement lawsuit against Richard Prince and Gagosian Gallery, forcing the Prince and his gallery to deliver up all works judged to be derivative from Cariou’s photographs for destruction or other disposition. Prince’s “fair use” defense was rejected by US District Judge Deborah Batts, definitely putting a post-game crimp into 80’s appropriation art, which critic Jerry Salz called “the idea that ate the art world”.
