Appropriation artist Richard Prince and Gagosian Gallery have largely won their lawsuit versus photographer Patrick Cariou on appeal. A lower court ruled that Prince’s use of Cariou’s photographs in his “Canal Zone” series of works violated Caroiu’s copyrights, but the United States Court of Appeals thought differently in 25 of thirty cases. The decision concerning the remaining five works still in dispute was returned to the lower court for re-ruling. The back-and-forth story of the case is, suprisingly, told with great clarity in the court’s judgment, available online!
