Prince v Cariou – misappropriation of artworks

A New York Federal Court has just ruled that the artist Richard Prince must destroy a series of paintings because they were re-workings of photographs by Patrick Cariou. According to the report in The Guardian, the judge said that rather than just adding new elements to the original work, a new piece must create something "plainly different from the original purposes for which it was created"

The full judgement can be found in Westlaw.
