Arch-appropriator Richard Prince’s lawyers are fending off a lawsuit from photographer Patrick Cariou, whose images of Rastafarians served as the basis for Prince’s Canal Zone series of works. Last year Prince’s works were judged to be infringing on Cariou’s, and unsold Prince paintings could potentially have been ordered destroyed. Prince’s appeal of the ruling was heard on May 21 before a three-judge panel that seemed as if it could decide either way. Deliberations are ongoing.
