AP sues retailers over ‘HOPE’ image

NEW YORK

The Associated Press has sued Urban Outfitters and other clothing retailers in federal court, accusing them of selling T-shirts that violate the news agency’s copyright of a photograph of Barack Obama that an artist’s “HOPE” image was based on.

The news agency filed separate lawsuits Wednesday against Urban Outfitters Inc., Nordstrom Inc. and Zumiez Inc., seeking unspecified damages for products using the image that were sold at stores nationwide.

In each lawsuit, the AP said the retailers had engaged in willful and blatant violation of the AP’s copyright to a photograph that artist Shepard Fairey’s “HOPE” image was based on.

The AP and Fairey settled copyright claims against each other this year.
