Ethics Response 2

article about modification of photos online

The assigned reading gave me an updated perspective and realizations of my design work and graphic design as a whole. For example the article about the photo manipulation ethics was I topic a was previously well aware of but the article still was refreshing. I have in the past when using copyright imagery in student projects credited the representative artist or photographer in captions. 

article about the Shepard Fairey case

I side with Fairey more in the Fairey Copyright Hope Poster case because I believe that what Fairey created should have been considered under fair use because his work was “transformative.” I also however think that he should have acquired permission to use the photo and shouldn’t have fabricated lies surrounding this poster.
