When swiping material off the net. The Man will sic his lawyers on your ass.
The image, Fairey has acknowledged, is based on an Associated Press photograph, taken in April 2006 by Manny Garcia on assignment for the AP at the National Press Club in Washington.

The AP says it owns the copyright, and wants credit and compensation. Fairey disagrees.
Theyre asking for millions. Yes, Im looking at you, comicbook reviewer geek.

if that's their stupid logic, then why stop with anyone taking a copy? why not sue everyone who even looks at it? fucking idiots.

if anyone can prove i made a single cent of profit out of a blog that puts up material to be critiqued, marveled at and made fun of, i offer you the dregs of a workingman's salary.

if anything, they should be paying me for drumming up any kind of interest in their products. actually, they don't need me at all.
