The definitive answer in the Obama poster debate

Stephen Colbert recently hosted a debate between David Ross, former Director of the Whitney Museum, and Stephen’s brother Ed, a partner at Kenyon & Kenyon who specializes in copyright.  This debate produced what I think is probably the definitive answer on how the Shepard Fairey copyright debate should come out.

The money quote:

STEPHEN: Who do you really think is right?

ED:  Who’s paying me?

  1. is there a legal question to which this is not the answer? (this is how we’re answering questions about whether leases in the mobile home park still exist post-fire, btw. altho since i don’t get paid, the answer is “do you want it to still exist?”)
