I seem to recall, through a foggy memory, a shit storm over graffiti print's martin whatson's 'en pointe' release. Someone on UAA contacted the original photographer/photographer's son and money eventually changed hands. Apparently. You can probably still find the thread. If you haven't been banned.
No minute gone comes ever back again take heed and see ye nothing do in vain

don't know of the law elsewhere, but in the US, if you've changed the original image to substantionally have a different meaning and context, then you're ok.... as for ethics and morals, that's a whole other story and should be judged on a by-case basis, IMO

The original photo is a good image and Fairey has, by moving the bespectacled copper in from the left given ita greater sense of threat and claustrophobia. However, that additional truncheon is ridiculous, completely unnecessary...
