That Prince Harry sure gets around.
Seems like only yesterday he was playing naked billiards in Las Vegas with his guy- and gal-pals. Photos circulated of the royal heinie. He was getting in a few last bank shots before shipping off to Afghanistan, for his second four-month tour of duty. On Friday, Harry reported to his squadron in Camp Bastion, Helmand province, where he'll be a copilot gunner on Apache helicopters fighting the Taliban. Come home safe, sweet Prince.
Fairey gets dustedRemember Shepard Fairey? In 2008, the street artist produced the far-famed Barack Obama "Hope" poster ( www.philly.com/fairey). Um, said the Associated Press, isn't that our photo, taken by Manny Garcia? Fairey claimed fair use - i.e., he wasn't bound by copyright. The AP tried to get credit and payment. Fairey sued the AP, seeking a fair-use ruling.
For a while he was a hero for folks wanting a different way of looking at copyright. Then it all caved in. Fairey, 42, pleaded guilty to lying and forging documents. The Department of Justice pressed for jail time, but a judge on Friday said no: For misdemeanor contempt, Fairey will get two years' suspended sentence, 300 hours' community service (if he finishes within a year, so will his sentence), and a $25,000 fine.
