“Apropos Appropriation”, The New York Times

Months late, Randy Kennedy tries to summarize the issues surrounding the Richard Prince litigation. He does a nice job, but misses the point, because the fact is that this litigation is about Prince making a lot of money, which is what has made him a target. I’ve spoken to Prince, Carriou and his lawyer… reread my article here. All those artists out there ripping images off the net will never be sued… they’re not worth suing! Isn’t it weird how these critics always shy away from the main point of the story? It’s the one they don’t understand and don’t want to – there’s an unwritten rule they respect, like a vow of celibacy.
