He didn't 'Obey'

The nearly year-old legal dispute centers on Fairey’s iconic Obama Hope poster, which he based on of the photos of President Barack Obama taken in April 2006 by AP photographer Mannie Garcia at the National Press Club.

Fairey had long claimed he based his abstract graphic rendition on a photo of Obama seated next to actor George Clooney. In court documents (.pdf) filed Friday, Fairey admitted he actually used a solo shot of Obama from the same event, and had destroyed and fabricated evidence to
support his lie.

Does any of that whole thing make sense to you? As in A, who cares, B, who cares, C, why is it in court? and, of course, D, who cares?

It's so stupid. The only reason I posted this is I had one of Fairey's "Obey" stickers a long time ago.
